Chelsea will reportedly have to stump up a whopping £75m if they want to sign France international forward Antoine Griezmann, according to The Express.

The defending Premier League champions, who were pinned back to a 2-2 home draw against West Brom on Wednesday night, have been long-term admirers of the Atletico Madrid winger.

The 24-year-old, who has 22 international caps for his country, has scored an impressive 14 goals in 25 appearances in all competitions for the La Liga outfit this season.

Griezmann, who is also attracting interest from the likes of Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, is set to have his release clause increased from £60m to £75m by Atletico in a bid to ward off his potential suitors.

Chelsea have lined up Griezmann as their ideal replacement for Belgium ace Eden Hazard, who has been linked with moves to Manchester United and Madrid this summer.
