Grenier flattered by Arsenal interest

Arsenal target Clement Grenier has said he is flattered by the Gunners’ interest and revealed that his Lyon future remains unclear.

Grenier, 22, was in superb form in the closing stages of the Ligue 1 season, with the France international midfielder’s displays convincing Arsene Wenger he would fit into his plans in north London.

The Arsenal boss, however, faces a battle to capture Grenier, with Lyon determined to hold onto one of their most promising homegrown talents, who has a year left on his contract.

"I know Lyon have rejected an offer from Arsenal. Of course it's flattering that clubs are interested in me," Grenier told Le Parisien, having already said he is unsure where he will be playing next season.

"It's hard for me to talk about my future now because I'm not yet certain of it,” he told RTL. “I prefer to wait to be 100% sure of what is going to happen before I do it."

Club president Jean-Michel Aulas said earlier this week that both Grenier and Lyon were "looking at a one-year extension, perhaps more".

But Grenier told RTL on Tuesday that only further talks with Aulas and coach Remi Garde after the squad's return from pre-season training in Tignes on Friday would clarify the situation.

"My decision will be made and announced after the meeting,” he said. “As soon as I'm 100% certain, then I can say more about it."

Between the end of France's end-of-season tour of South America, during which Grenier won his maiden senior cap, and his holidays, he said he had made up his mind about his future plans and had told both Garde and Aulas.

The most likely outcome remains a short-term extension to his contract, meaning he would remain at the Stade de Gerland for a further season.

"Perhaps I'll be at Lyon [next season]. Anyway, I have a year left on my contract, so whatever happens, if the club doesn't want to sell, I'll be a Lyon player,” Grenier told L’Equipe. “The president knows what I want - that's why we're trying to strike a deal."

Grenier has gone from being a bit-part player on the fringes of the first-team squad to an integral part of the club's immediate future since he was almost sold to Nice last summer, only for the move to be vetoed when Yoann Gourcuff got injured.
