News of Griezmann's availability has hit the headlines in recent days.
The Spanish heavyweights signed Griezmann from rivals Atletico Madrid for £108million in 2019.
The Frenchman, 30, has scored 35 goals and provided 17 assists in 99 appearances since his arrival.
And despite being contracted until June 2024 – Barcelona are looking to recoup a significant chunk of their investment.
The Catalan giants are in dire financial straits and need to sell in order to register new signings Sergio Aguero and Memphis Depay.
Barca have already exceeded the La Liga's strict salary cap and need to slash their wage bill to comply with the league's regulations.

There's also the added complication of agreeing a new mega-money deal with superstar Lionel Messi.
Selling Griezmann this summer could be the perfect solution for Ronald Koeman and Co.
And that could be good news for PSG who are the 8/1 favourites in Betfair's betting market.
The French heavyweights are looking to wrestle back their Ligue 1 title and intend to spend heavily this summer.
PSG have already captured Achraf Hakimi in a deal worth £51million with Sergio Ramos and goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma set to join on free transfers.
It also looks increasingly likely that Everton will not sanction another loan deal for striker Moise Kean, leaving Mauricio Pochettino on the hunt for a new forward.
Manchester City are next in the market at 10s.
