22- year- old Lyon midfielder Clement Grenier is one player whose progress has pleased Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

Grenier was on target on Sunday night against Rennes in front of Arsenal scouts. He has been likened to Samir Nasir in his style, and is rated at around £8 million by his club.

The France U-21 player wanted to quit the Stade Gerland last summer but had a rethink, after injuries to key men- including Yoann Gourcuff, a former Gunners target- to make 27 appearances, scoring seven goals and providing eight assists.

Grenier, now could be on his way to the English Premier League, after Wenger told French programme Telefoot:

“We are following him. His intelligence of play pleases me. He has interesting qualities. He reminds me of Nasri.”
