Antoine Griezmann ‘can pick whatever he wants’ for his next challenge, but former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink would relish the chance to see the Atletico Madrid forward at Stamford Bridge.

France international Griezmann, who scored 15 goals in La Liga this season, announced last week that he would be leaving Atletico this summer and he has been heavily tipped to sign for Barcelona.

However, Hasselbaink, who starred for both Atletico and Chelsea during his playing career, is intrigued to see how Griezmann would fare in the Premier League.

Hasselbaink told us-bookies.com: “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.”
