Antione Griezmann in action for Atletico Madrid.

Brighton & Hove Albion are set to come up against one of the world’s most sought-after strikers at the Amex on Sunday 6th August - after Antione Griezmann agreed a new deal with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid.

The Seagulls welcome the 2014 and 2016 Champions League finalists to the south coast for a pre-season friendly, and after months of speculation, Griezmann’s future has been decided ahead of their visit.

The striker scored 26 goals for the Madrid club during the 2016/17 season as they finished in third place behind local rivals Real Madrid and second-placed Barcelona.

Griezmann was announced as the third best player in the world at January’s Ballon d’Or ceremony - only finishing behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

The Frenchman won the Golden Boot at last summer’s European Championships that took place in his home nation - but finished the tournament as a runner-up to Ronaldo’s Portugal.

The 26-year-old is also set to line up against England in tonight’s international friendly in Paris.

Tickets for Albion’s meeting with Atletico Madrid can be purchased online at or via the Albion Booking Line - 0844 327 1901 - where a £1.50 per ticket booking fee is charged (please note the Ticket Office at the Amex is currently closed for in-person visitors).
