Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has admitted that he would love to see Antoine Griezmann sign for Chelsea FC this summer.

The France international recently announced his departure from Atletico Madrid this summer as the speculation about his next club begins to gather pace.

FC Barcelona have been strongly linked with a move to sign the 28-year-old this summer but a move has yet to be officially confirmed.

Chelsea FC will be looking to strengthen their attack this summer if they are able to overturn their Fifa transfer ban, especially if Eden Hazard moves to Real Madrid as expected.

And former Chelsea FC star Hasselbaink believes that Griezmann would be a great signing for the west London club.

Speaking in an interview with us-bookies.com, Hasselbaink said: “He can pick whoever he wants to play for.

“I would love to see him at Chelsea or in the Premier League, seeing how he’d cope with it but he can pick whatever he wants.

“If it is Barcelona, then what a combination that’ll be with Luis Suarez and (Lionel) Messi. It’s not great for (Philippe) Coutinho, it’ll be difficult for him to cope with another addition but he’s still a world class player.”

Griezmann is widely regarded as one of European football’s top attacking talents.

The World Cup winner scored 15 goals and made nine assists in La Liga this season, and also netted four times and made two assists in the Champions League for the Spanish side.

Meanwhile, Chelsea FC are currently preparing for their Europa League final showdown with Arsenal in Baku next Wednesday night as they look to end Maurizio Sarri’s first campaign in charge with some silverware.
