Newcastle Linked With Clement Grenier Transfer

7 years ago

The latest French player (who is also the latest Lyon one – Fofana, Gomis etc) to be linked with a move to Newcastle is Clement Grenier.

The 23 year old plays wide right or in behind the striker(s) and is rated at £10m according to reports in the French media..

Lyon aren’t having the best of seasons though they have improved recently and are in eight place in Ligue 1.

Grenier has scored four goals in nineteen league appearances this season and scored another seven goals last year.

He also picked up five yellows last year and five already this time.

The midfielder made 4 starts in the Champions League this campaign and scored 1 goal, Lyon not qualifying and dropping into the Europa League.

Grenier is claimed to be of interest to a number of English clubs and has a handful of international caps, though he didn’t get any playing time in France’s World Cup qualifying campaign, though he was on the bench three times.

A similar position and profile to Remy Cabella, it would appear that Gremier may be ranked slightly higher in France than the Montpellier player, though playing for a bigger and more newsworthy club like Lyon would give him a higher profile.
