Liverpool missed out on the league title to Manchester City by a single point last season.

But Griezmann, who swapped La Liga allegiances by completing a £107 million transfer to Barcelona, is hoping the Reds can become English champions.

"In terms of teams I admire Liverpool because of the fans. Hopefully one day they will win the league again," he said.

Liverpool made up for domestic heartbreak by winning the Champions League, and hundreds of thousands of fans flooded the streets for their victory parade.

The 28-year-old forward had been linked with a summer switch to Manchester United before signing for Barcelona.

About speculation linking him with a move to England, he added: "I was having a lot of fun in La Liga. We have one thing the Premier League does not - the sun."

Griezmann also harbours a desire to play alongside Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette.

"As a player I would like to play with Alexandre Lacazette. He's a friend of mine off the field and we've played together for the national team. He's got a lot of talent."

Griezmann and Lacazette have played together for France and they came very close to being club colleagues when the then-Lyon striker was strongly linked with a move to Atletico Madrid.

Of course, he snubbed Atleti's interest by signing for Arsenal.

How will Griezmann fare at Barcelona? Let us know what you think.
