Lionel Messi praised Antoine Griezmann as "one of the best" amid reports linking the Atlético Madrid forward with Barcelona.
Griezmann heavily tipped to join Barcelona this summer
Griezmann is widely linked with a switch to the LaLiga champions in the close season after another prolific campaign for Atlético.
Messi talked up the France international as one of the world's best and he would seemingly be happy to have the 27-year-old at Camp Nou.
"It's obvious that I like him. He's one of the best right now," the Argentina star told RAC1.
"I don't know if there's anything with him or not, but we're delighted that the best come and Griezmann is one of them."
