Arsene Wenger recently admitted that he has been keeping tabs on the Lyon midfielder, who he likened to Samir Nasri, and it seems the 22-year-old Frenchman may well be considering a possible move to The Emirates in the upcoming months.
Grenier has held talks about his future at Lyon with Remi Garde, but he has pretty much confirmed that he will be leaving the Ligue 1 side and made up his mind who he wants to sign for.
Quoted on ESPN.co.uk, the France Under-21 international declared:
‘I have more or less made a decision about which club I want to join.
‘I have made the choice for sporting reasons above all.
‘Arsenal? It could well be them.
‘There would be competition for places, but you get that at all big clubs and it does not stop me making my decision.
‘I am still young, but I have always set myself targets and I do everything possible to exceed them.’
Grenier has been with Lyon since 2002 but only made the breakthrough into the first-team in 2009. Since then, the Frenchman has made 72 appearances in all competitions (33 this season), scoring eight goals and creating 11 (seven and eight this campaign).
In case you have not seen or heard of Grenier, here is a video of the guy in action:
If Grenier has chosen to join Arsenal this summer, would he make a good addition to this side?
