Antoine Griezmann has been voted the third best footballer France in 2015 behind Blaise Matuidi and Paul Pogba by France Football magazine. Griezmann has risen to prominence as Atletico Madrid's all action attacker and has been linked with some of the world's biggest clubs. At just 24, the sky is the limit for the former Real Sociedad man and if you are looking for a bandwagon to jump on for Euro 2016, try the Griezmann one before it fills up.

Griezmann's 2015

They say you should start as you mean to go on. Antoine Griezmann's 2015 started with a brace against Levante in La Liga during a 3-1 win for los Colchoneros. It was certainly how he meant to go on because he would score another 14 before the league ended with Atletico in third position that season. He has started the 2015-16 season in similar fashion and has now scored 12 goals in all competitions with Christmas upon us. He has scored the winning goal for his side in six games thus far in the league and Atletico have grown semi-reliant on the Frenchman's explosive ability.

The vote, which PSG's Matuidi won by 12, is decided by previous winners including Thierry Henry, Zinedine Zidane and Karim Benzema.

Griezmann is under contract with los Rojiblancos until 2020 and will acquire the highest possible market fee if he is to leave the Vicente Calderon as has been speculated in recent weeks and months. The hype train is not slowing down anytime soon and Atletico will have to get used to having their star being gazed upon by jealous onlookers as the plaudits continue to roll in.
