talkSPORT's Spanish football expert Graham Hunter says Chelsea have the financial power to sign Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann.
The 24-year-old is one of the finest talents in world football and is not a target for the Blues according to boss Jose Mourinho.
But Hunter believes that if Chelsea decide to make a move for the Frenchman, they will add an "exceptional" player to their squad ahead of next season.
"Antoine Griezmann is exceptional and would set the Premier League alight," Hunter is quoted as saying by the Daily Star.
"This is a really talented, quick and robust young footballer. The price will have to be extraordinary because neither Simeone or Atletico want to let him go.
"Chelsea have the power to buy him though. If they go all-in they have the power to take him from a club which is more than €500m in debt and trying to pay for a new stadium.
"Griezmann is not pushing to get out, but the fact remains the economic power at Chelsea is such that, if they want him, they can prise him away.
"Atletico have already signed two big strikers [Luciano Vietto and Jackson Martinez] maybe they are preparing for the inevitable?"
