According to Sport reporter Albert Roge, Barca representatives met with the French star’s sister and a five-year contract is a distinct possibility.
The Spanish giants will have to trigger Griezmann’s €100m buy-out clause for the move to take place, of which €20m will go to Real Sociedad for their part in developing the player.
The 27-year-old has recently said that his future will be decided before the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia.
If Griezmann’s own deadline is to be taken seriously, things will have to escalate quickly in the coming weeks for the move to take place.

Gerard Deulofeu is set to search for a new club this summer with it looking increasingly unlikely he will return to Barcelona, according to Spanish radio station Cadena SER.
The former Everton winger, who has spent the second-half of this season on loan at Watford after failing to re-establish himself under Ernesto Valervde, is resigned to leaving Camp Nou.
Deulofeu made his fairytale return to the Catalan giants last summer, with Blaugrana exercising a buyback clause in the initial deal they struck with the Toffees.
But, the 24-year-old struggled to find the form that had seen him perform well during a loan stint at AC Milan last term, and this year, has sparingly featured for the Hornets.
Barcelona are thought to be willing to listen to offers for his services at the end of the season while a long-term stay in the Premier League appears unlikely.
Meanwhile, Deulofeu was recently aggrieved at Barca for not featuring during their La Liga title-winning celebrations, despite making 10 league outings earlier in the campaign.
Though the summer transfer window is still a couple of months away, that hasn’t stopped the rumours of players potentially being on the move.
Across the world of football, there remains plenty of activity and stories that have football fans talking.
Here, we look at the latest transfer deals that could happen when the market reopens in June.
The 26-year-old Brazilian has impressed this season, helping Spartak to their current second-place position in the Russia Premier League.
Spartak value Fernando, who is also being watched by Sevilla and Atletico Madrid, at £22m (Dh109m).
The demands have the Gunners considering younger and cheaper options, including Mikel Arteta, Patrick Vieira and Julian Nagelsmann.
