Newcastle to battle Arsenal for Lyon’s star

Arsenal have been long in for Lyon’s Clement Grenier. The prospect of signing the player came up in summer and he was linked throughout the summer transfer window to Arsenal. However, the player’s interest was killed when Lyon officials openly declared that they will not sell him.

However, their interest has rekindled now.

Now, Newcastle are being linked to the player as well. This is because the Toons are on verge of selling Yohan Cabaye to the big spending PSG for around £26 million and he is apparently at Channel for his medical for PSG. Since the player is an essential part of the squad, they will need a quick replacement.

Lyon’s midfielder Clement Grenier is rated around £12 million and different news-sources have been comparing the player to Cabaye for long.

However, French sources claim that Arsenal are far more serious in the run because they have approached the player in January and they have put forward a bid of around £15 million.
