Arsenal Transfers: 5 Alternatives To Salomon Kalou Gunners Could Land
5. Clement Grenier
This French attacking midfielder is currently playing for Lyon and has already been subject to much transfer activity during January courtesy of Newcastle United. The 23 year old already has 75 appearances for Lille and might be an ideal alternative to Kalou as he can play both on the right wing or behind the striker. Grenier is a very technically proficient player, exactly the type that Arsenal Wenger is fond of. Hed like fit straight into the squad and adapt quickly to the Premier League due to strong passing and quick feet. Getting Grenier could mean the manager could afford to rotate his squad more, allowing key players like Santi Carzola and Mesut Ozil to have more rest. The player turned down a move to Newcastle claiming that it wasnt a good idea to move clubs so close to the World Cup. However a bid from Arsenal, a bigger club than Newcastle, might persuade the French midfielder to swap Lyon for London.
