Arsenal are closing in on Lyon midfielder Clement Grenier. The Daily Star says Arsene Wenger has admitted his interest in Grenier, who has been dubbed the new Samir Nasri. The 22-year-old is also wanted by Liverpool and Juventus.

"I have more or less made a decision about which club I want to join," he said.

"I have made the choice for sporting reasons above all. Arsenal? It could well be them.

"There would be competition for places, but you get that at all big clubs and it does not stop me making my decision.

"I am still young, but I have always set myself targets and I do everything possible to exceed them."
