Lyon midfielder Clement Grenier wants a move to Newcastle United.
But demands by Grenierâ€™s agent mean that Newcastle still have a lot of work to do to snare the 23-year-old.
Sources in France told the People: â€śLike Cabaye, Grenier can play right-midfield, as an attacking midfielder and in the hole.
â€śHe has been talking to the Newcastle lads at the French World Cup training camp and he is keen to go to St Jamesâ€™ Park. But his agent will demand wages that he feels are appropriate for a player who is going to Brazil.â€ť
Newcastleâ€™s top earner is skipper Fabricio Coloccini on ÂŁ65,000 a week. Toon hope to get Grenier on slightly less.
