La Liga By: Ambrose Udeme | 20/01/2018

Barcelona are reportedly reserving their No.7 shirt for the club's summer target Antoine Griezmann.

The La Liga leaders are expected to make a move for Griezmann next summer when his buyout clause at Atletico Madrid drops to €100m, Sky Sports reports.

According to the report, Barca are already planning for the arrival of the Frenchman by reserving their No.7 shirt, which is now vacant following the departure of Arda Turan to Istanbul Basaksehir.

Recent speculation had suggested that Philippe Coutinho might occupy that shirt, but the Brazilian will near the No.14 instead once Javier Mascherano completes his transfer to Hebei China Fortune.
