Arsenal transfers: I could well be joining Gunners – Clement Grenier
Arsenal transfers: Clement Grenier hints that he could be set to join the Gunners from Lyon this summer
Clement Grenier has hinted that he could move to Arsenal this summer, saying he has decided which club he wants to join.
The 22-year-old, who currently plays for Lyon and has been likened to former Arsenal playmaker Samir Nasri, has been linked with a summer switch to Emirates Stadium in recent weeks.
France Under-21 international Grenier has scored seven goals and made nine assists in all competitions for Lyon this term.
And the attacking midfielder, who has been called up to the senior France squad for the first time for the friendlies against Uruguay and Brazil, says he has already decided which club he would like to join this summer.
“I have more or less made a decision about which club I want to join,” Grenier is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
“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.”
