Griezmann is on the verge of completing a transfer from Real Sociedad to Atletico Madrid after the two clubs reached agreement on a €30 million fee, ESPN FC reports.

Griezmann was largely impressive for Real Sociedad last season, when he scored 16 goals to go with three assists. Ultimately, his performances earned him a World Cup call-up from France, while also drawing the attention of many Champions League clubs. Now, defending La Liga winners Atletico Madrid have activated the winger's release clause, which will see Griezmann join Diego Simeone's side to help bolster an attack that lost Diego Costa earlier this summer.

Griezmann had a goal and an assist in Real Sociedad's surprising 3-1 victory over Barcelona on Saturday.

After scoring 10 goals in 32 La Liga appearances last season, Griezmann has found the back of the net 15 times in 22 games this year. The Frenchman now trails only Cristiano Ronaldo (22) and Diego Costa (21) for most goals in league play this season.

Griezmann has seen a £12.5 transfer bid from Arsenal rejected by Real Sociedad, the Express reports.

Griezmann, a 22-year-old French winger, has played fabulously in La Liga this season, currently sitting third in the league with 12 goals, while also having two assists to his name. Further, Griezmann only trails Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi with 3.4 shot attempts per game. His potential signing with Arsenal seems like a signature Arsene Wenger move, since Griezmann is a young, talented Frenchman and fits the Gunners' need for attacking help in light of Theo Walcott's (knee) recent season-ending injury. However, after rejecting a first approach, Real Sociedad is reported to be pushing for a fee closer to Griezmann's buy-out clause of £25 million, so it remains to be seen if Arsenal is willing to increase their initial offer.

Griezmann scored in the 61st minute of Real Sociedad's 1-5 loss to Real Madrid on Saturday.

The goal was Griezmann's eighth score in Liga plays this season, with six coming in his last four appearances in league play. He is red hot right now and will look to extend his figure against Celta Vigo on November 23 after the international break.
