"He's going through an exceptional moment in his career".
To that end, reports on Monday have suggested that new Arsenal manager Unai Emery has resurrected his interest in Fellaini, having wanted to sign him for Paris Saint-Germain at one point, and talks are scheduled to take place between the two parties this week.
The France global is available for €100 million (£88m) due to a release clause in his deal with Atletico, and Barcelona are at the front of the queue to sign the striker. As Giraldo noted, Griezmann previously said he will make a choice before the FIFA World Cup, which begins on June 14.

Of the last 10 Masters, only three have been won by the old guard, two for Nadal, one for Federer. "I had to push". That was followed by a four-set upset of 10th-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta, and then the surprising win over Goffin.
The France forward has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona, who could activate the £89m release clause in his Atletico Madrid contract.
Griezmann would be able to fill a number of different roles for Barcelona, as he's operated at the point of the attack, as a support striker and occasionally in advanced wide positions for Atletico.
"We have already seen other players signing for Barcelona and not reaching the levels they were used to at other teams because there is a really top-level player making the difference at Barcelona".
His worldwide team-mate Umtiti - who signed a five-year deal with Barca on Monday - said Griezmann would be a welcome recruit at Camp Nou.
