Lionel Messi praised Antoine Griezmann as "one of the best" amid reports linking the Atletico Madrid forward with Barcelona.

Griezmann is widely linked with a switch to the LaLiga champions in the close-season after another prolific campaign for Atletico. 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."

Messi was speaking after Barcelona's 1-0 win over Real Sociedad in the great Andres Iniesta's last game for the club. After a campaign in which Barca won LaLiga and the Copa del Rey, Messi was satisfied with his side's season.
