Sociedad reject £15M Spurs bid for Griezmann

Tottenham have seen a bid for rejected by Real Sociedad for French winger Antoine Griezmann, who they are unwilling to let go for less than his release clause of £25m, the Daily Mail is reporting.

Spurs were thought to have made a bid of £15m for the winger’s services, who impressed during this summer’s World Cup with France, but have swiftly seen the offer rebuffed.

Griezmann found himself thrust into the France first team picture after star Franck Ribery was ruled out through injury – and did not disappoint.

Chelsea and Monaco are said to also be monitoring the situation of Griezmann, 23, who has only played for Real Sociedad during his senior football career.

He has played 201 times since making his debut back in 2009 and scored 52 goals – 11 of those in the 2012-13 season that saw Sociedad qualify for Champions League football for the first time since 2004.

He impressed on the main European stage too as he went on to score 20 goals from 49 games last season.

It is yet to be seen if Griezmann would leave Spain for his full £25m boy-out clause or leave at all, and if Spurs were unable to strike a deal, would reportedly turn to Netherlands youngster Memphis Depay as another option – another young winger to impress in Brazil this summer.
