Griezmann could become best in the world at Bayern, claims Lucas

Lucas Hernández would be keen to see former Atlético de Madrid team-mate Antoine Griezmann join him at Bayern Munich, where he could become "the best in the world". Griezmann will follow Lucas out of the door at the Wanda Metropolitano in the coming weeks, with Barcelona widely tipped to sign the France forward. But while a deal has yet to be finalised, Lucas is interested in linking up with his compatriot again, believing a move to Bayern would suit him.

Great to have Griezmann at Bayern

"[Griezmann] is a big player and many clubs would like him," Lucas told a news conference today. "Of course, it would be great to have him here, although I do not know if the club are interested in him. I do not know if Barcelona would be perfect for him, but if there was a chance he could come here, he might become the best player in the world."

Lucas, whio was presented as a Bayern player on Monday, added: "Bayern are one of the biggest clubs in the world - and it will always be like that, everyone knows. They compete for the league every year and are always in the Champions League. Everyone in Italy, Spain, France and all of Europe sees and knows that."

Stepping into Lahm's boots

The World Cup winner is taking Bayern great Philipp Lahm's number 21 shirt and acknowledges the need for him to subsequently deliver. "That's a historic number," Lucas said. "A great former player like Philipp Lahm has worn it. Of course, it is an honour to be able to wear this number here and I will try to reward the club as much as possible."
