The Juventus and Argentina striker could fill the gap at the Wanda Metropolitano should French striker Antoine Griezmann depart this summer.

Despite the latest declarations from Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann stating he has no intention to leave the club with even his sister voicing her opinion on the matter, speculation is rife as to who could replace the French player should he leave the "Rojiblancos" this summer.

Italian sports daily TuttoSport maintain that Argentina and Juventus striker Paulo Dybala is the candidate to fill the French player's boots in Madrid citing the good relationship between the player and Atleti boss Diego Simeone and the high opinion "Cholo" holds in the Argentine international.

The latest club that Griezmann has been linked with is Paris Saint-Germain with the French side needing to cover the 120 million euro to cover Griezmann's release clause as it drops from 200 million euro.
