Arsene Wenger has confirmed Arsenal's interest in Lyon star Clement Grenier.
The midfielder, a product of the club's youth academy, has represented France at Under-21s level and featured regularly for his side throughout the 2012-13 Ligue 1 season.
Wenger has admitted that the Gunners are monitoring the 22-year-old, who has drawn comparisons to Samir Nasri from the Emirates Stadium boss.
"We are following him," Wenger told Telefoot. "His intelligence of play pleases me. He has interesting qualities. He reminds me of Nasri."
The Arsenal boss also once again denied that he has had any contact with Paris Saint-Germain over the possibility of replacing Carlo Ancelotti in the summer.
He added: "PSG never offered me the manager job. [Club president Nasser] Al-Khelaifi didn't contact me.
"In a year? You must accept the idea that a coach who is named will continue the year after. This is how it works in football."
