Grenier has drawn the interest of Arsenal, the Daily Mail reports.

Grenier, a 22-year-old attacking midfielder, blossomed in Ligue 1 this season by scoring seven goals and providing eight assists. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed the club's interest in Grenier, who was called up to the France squad this week after former Gunner Samir Nasri, a player Wenger likens to Grenier, pulled out due to injury. It is believed that a fee in the region of eight million euros could secure Grenier.
