Arsenal Linked With Grenier & Aurier As Defender Poses In An Arsenal Shirt
Arsenal are interested in Clement Grenier and Serge Aurier with the defender intensifying rumours after posting a picture of himself wearing a Gunners shirt.
With the summer transfer window set to open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Arsenal are linked with Clement Grenier and Serge Aurier.
Arsenal are interested in signing Lyon midfielder Clement Grenier and Toulouse right-back Serge Aurier with the defender intensifying rumours after posting a picture of himself wearing a Gunners shirt, according to the Express.
With boss Arsene Wenger reportedly armed with a sizable transfer kitty this summer, fans are eagerly anticipating some new arrivals at the Emirates and it seems the Frenchman could be set to raid his homeland once again in search of talent.
One player that appears to have caught his eye is Grenier and with the Express claiming the attacking midfielder recently hinted he could leave Lyon this summer, a move to Arsenal could be on the cards after Wenger confirmed his interest in the 22-year-old earlier in the summer:
“We are following him. His intelligence of play pleases me. He has interesting qualities. He reminds me of Nasri.” Wenger is quoted as saying by the Express
The newspaper suggests we’re continuing to monitor the player, who can play on the right side of midfield or in a more central attacking role, and with just one year left on his contract he could be available at a reasonable price this summer.
Another Ligue 1 based player we’re after is Ivory Coast international Aurier who is currently on the books at Toulouse and the Express claims he’s been short-listed as a possible replacement for Bacary Sagna, should the Frenchman leave this summer.
Rumours of a move intensified after Aurier posted a picture of himself wearing an Arsenal shirt (see above) while on holiday on both his Twitter and Facebook accounts.
Both look like they would be decent signings and you know it wouldn’t be a transfer window if Wenger didn’t buy a player from France!
