Barcelona have identified Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen as alternative for Antoine Griezmann.

The Catalans also consider him as a possible replacement for Andres Iniesta.

Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has suggested that in-demand Antoine Griezmann is going nowhere.

The Frenchman has been strongly linked with a move to La Liga champions Barcelona and also with Manchester United in the recent times.

Griezmann had an another excellent season. He scored 29 goals in all competitions for Diego Simeone’s side.

But it looks like the La Liga megastar is staying at Atletico Madrid for another season.

Hence, Eriksen has emerged as the club’s preferred candidate to fill that void but Barca are unsure if they can afford the Danish playmaker.

Barcelona have already spent heavily on Phil Coutinho, who has not lived up to his price tag since he joined from Liverpool in January.

Funds for Eriksen would be hard to come by for the Spanish side.
