Liverpool fans aren’t spending a second believing the speculation that they could sign Antonie Griezmann this month, despite a bookmaker making them the favourites to land the Frenchman.
With the Reds picking up £142 million from selling Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, there are expectations that Jurgen Klopp will look to sign a replacement during this window.
However, while Thomas Lemar and Riyad Mahrez have both been linked, Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to immediately shoot down a talk of signing Griezmann.
The 26-year-old was expected to leave Atletico Madrid for Manchester Unitedlast summer, however, Atleti’s transfer ban persuaded him to not only stay at the Vicente Caulderon, but sign a contract extension.
Not that anyone thinks it will actually happen:
Not having any of these griezmann rumours more like Nathan Redmond

With Skybet now dropping the odds on Griezmann to #LFC if you put £10 on it you'll win £0 and a phantom kick in the nuts for being an idiot.

I feel like the Griezmann rumors have been made up to make LFC supporters on twitter look foolish.

Griezmann. Massive signing. Massive statement. Chances are also a massive pile of bollocks linking him with us.

Griezmann? Fucking hell and I thought the Bale link was ridiculous. More chance of us winning the league than signing him, don’t kid yourself

But just imagine Liverpool did… Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Griezmann?!
