Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger shared a moment with Euro 2016 star Antoine Griezmann before last night's final in Paris.

Wenger was working as a pundit for French television along with Marcel Desailly and former Gunner Robert Pires.

Over the weekend Arsenal were advised to sign Griezmann by another of Wenger's former players Ray Parlour.

The pundit was quoted in The Evening Standard as telling SkySports commenting: "We'd love to see Griezmann at Arsenal. That's the sort of quality they need."

Whether they stand a chance, is another matter.

Wenger may be a big fan of the French star, but finances would make a deal very difficult for the Atletico Madrid ace.

Griezmann's transfer value rocketed over the course of the tournament thanks to his six goals, which he really should have added to in the final against Portugal, missing a header from close range.

Arsenal would have to break their transfer record of the £42 million spent on Mesut Ozil to land the forward, and while they may be able to do so, the figures Atletico would want would be so eye watering that Wenger would surely write it off as a non-starter.
