Grenier Newcastle Offer Confirmed – Have A Look At What We Could Be Getting – Video Special

8 years ago

On Sunday French media claimed a Clement Grenier Newcastle offer of £11m had been made and now Sky SPorts have confirmed that a ‘substantial offer’ for the Lyon midfielder has been made.

The French midfielder also has said that he’d recently had talks with his Chairman who had said he’d consider offers for Grenier if they were up to the mark.

“I’ve only just learnt about Newcastle’s interest from the media, I’ve no idea what can be done at this time.

“The President did say earlier that if a good offer is made for me this winter then he would look at it.

“I don’t know if he has received an offer or not and so I am not thinking about it.”

“For the time being it isn’t in my head, I have to focus on playing for Olympique Lyonnais.”

The Grenier Newcastle offer is obviously linked with the departure of Yohan Cabaye, at least in terms of the money going to potentially pay for him.

However, have a look at the footage below. Grenier is clearly a very clever skilful player but looks more of a winger or free spirit in the Ben Arfa mould than a player who is in the heart of the action all the time.

Watch some great flicks and nutmegs, plus his long range passing looks excellent. Judge for yourself.

He’s the No.7 by the way, making loads of goals for Bafetimbi Gomis…next for Loic Remy?
