Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet has been talking about France team-mate Antoine Griezmann amid speculation the forward could move to the Camp Nou this summer.

Lenglet has been called up to the French squad for the first time for upcoming games against Bolivia, Turkey and Andorra but says he hasn’t talked to Griezmann about Barca.

“Griezmann is one of the three or four best players in LaLiga [Santander] as he has been in the league for many years and he scores many goals every season,” he said.

”He is Atletico Madrid’s star and one of the great stars in LaLiga [Santander]. We haven’t talked about Barcelona and he hasn’t spoken about his future yet.

”We don’t know where he is going to play and we must wait, but we are all on alert.”

It is no surprise to hear Lenglet talk up Griezmann given they are international team-mates, although his comments do come after speculation that the Barcelona dressing room is against the signing of the Atletico Madrid star following his decision to snub the club last summer.
