Real Sociedad forward Antoine Griezmann has admitted he might celebrate his 24th birthday as an Arsenal player.

The France international turned 23 yesterday and seems likely to move clubs this summer.

Arsenal have been strongly linked with an attempt to sign him, as have Manchester United, Chelsea, Juventus, Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain.

Griezmann acknowledges that he doesn’t know where he will be next season, but is just concentrating on playing for Sociedad.

He told El Mundo Deportivo: “PSG, Juventus, Arsenal, Real Madrid, Real Sociedad. I do not know where I will be celebrating my 24th birthday.

“I do not think too much about that. I think about playing at the moment and nothing more.

“I did not say I wanted to leave this club. This is not the time to talk about this stuff.”

Arsenal will be pleased to note that they were the only Premier League side to get a namecheck.
