Clément Grenier is a 22 year-old 6’1″ French International attacking midfielder, who is known for his technical ability and dribbling skills, and he’s not too bad with free kicks either.
Clément Grenier – 22 year French International midfielder
Clément started his career at his hometown club FC Annonay in France, when he was around seven years old, and his good play attracted Lyon who signed him in July, 2002 to their Youth Academy, when he was eleven.
This is another article on our series of up-and-coming young players, who may be targets for Newcastle either now or in the future.
Clément has played for all the French Youth sides, from U16 through U21, and was selected for France’s summer tour of South America this summer.
And he made his French debut when he was brought on in the second half in the 1-0 defeat by Uruguay, and then he again came on as a substitute in the 3-0 defeat by Brazil, for his second full cap.
Last season Clément played 33 times for Lyon with 7 goals and 9 assists, and in his career at Lyon he has played 67 games with 7 and 15 assists.
He’s French and is the right age for Newcastle, and we think this lad could become a very good player in the future, and is one to watch for Newcastle.
Here’s some video of Grenier.
