Antoine Griezmann announcing his intent to leave Atletico Madrid will have knock on effects around Europe in the transfer market this summer.

The Guardian report a £108 million move to Barcelona is most likely. This could have a knock on effect for Tottenham in two ways. 

Here is a look at two ways Tottenham can benefit from Griezmann heading to Barcelona.

Andre Gomes

The Sun reported this week that Spurs are close to a £35 million agreement with Barcelona to sign Andre Gomes.

Gomes has been on loan at Everton over the past season.

Barcelona need funds to finance the Gomes deal and balance the books and shifting their unwanted players is key to this.

The chance to sign Griezmann means Tottenham could secure Gomes quickly.

 

Malcom

Griezmann moving to Barcelona would be bad news for long term Tottenham target Malcom.

The Brazilian only made five La Liga starts in his debut La Liga season.

The Mail reported in January how Spurs were keen on the winger, who decided to stay put and complete his debut season in Spain.

His playing time did not pick up, if anything it decreased in the second half of the season. Griezmann signing would make his task even tougher, and boost Tottenham's hopes of landing him.
