The French winger has also attracted interest from Paris Saint-Germain. However, Griezmann refused to comment on his future after admitting that he will not make any decision until the end of the season.
"Does the PSG project interest me? I don't know. As I have already said, I will finish this season at San Sebastian. After that, Paris would be truly impressive," Griezmann said.
Sociedad star has already expressed his desire to play for the continents biggest club as he eyes for a place in France's national squad.
"I am relaxed about my future at the moment. I have not had talks other clubs yet. This is something to look at. I want to play for a leading European team and I hope this can help me get a place in the France team," the winger explained.
Meanwhile, Arsenal lost 1-0 to Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium in their last league fixture. Despite the defeat, Wenger has played down the suggestions that the Gunners were fragile against Mark Hughes' side.
"We were not fragile at all. I think our defensive performance was outstanding. If you look well at the chances that Stoke had today I can see maybe one cross on Crouch and after that what did they create? Nothing at all, so you cannot say that our defenders didn't perform," Wenger told Arsenal's official website.
