London - Manchester United legend Paul Scholes feels Antione Griezmann should be a top priority for his former side if they are to challenge for top honours.

With United's main strikers, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney nearing the twilight of their careers, Scholes feels the France international could be key to a successful long-term future for the Reds Devils.

Griezmann has been touted by British media to eventually leave Atletico Madrid for the Premier League, with Arsenal and Chelsea also said to be keen admirers.

"I think Griezmann would be up there," he told BT Sport before the Europa League clash against Feyenoord. "He looks like a top centre forward for Atletico.

"I think we need to be in the market for someone like that."

The 25-year-old has scored nine goals in 15 games across all competitions this season.

Griezmann had previously admitted that he'd like to one day play with Paul Pogba at club level. Adding that he constantly quizzes Pogba on life at United. The two share a close bond and often post pictures of themselves together on social media.
