Just been doing the usual searching for rumours, 1 that came up was Clement Grenier, looks a decent player, 30 y/ o, 2 footed judging by the worldies he's scored, don't think he'd cost the earth either, Mark would know more about him, I know a few will point at his age but a bit of experience ain't going to hurt us, especially if Citeh come in for Luiz 🤷🏼‍♂️

Is it 2014? I remember him and an Asian player kyotake or something along them lines being linked heavily every transfer window, 3 windows in a row.

I think the age probably rules Grenier out, plus he’s linked with every man and his dog due to his situation over there.

Looks decent on TonevTube 😂


{Ed002's Note - Clement Grenier (CM/AM) Rennes have asked Pini Zahavi to see if he can find a buyer in January to save losing him for nothing in the summer with them struggling financially. Approaches have been made to at least Nice, Montpellier, West Brom and Newcastle. The capability is there still - but Aston Villa have no immediate need for such a player with Ross Barkley on the books and if they cannot keep RB they should look for a younger solution than a 30 year old who will not improve.}

Flip that Ed002, Barkley has played less than half the games he should be available for, Nakamba, Lansbury etc ain’t getting a look in and should be shipped out and if they do leave in Jan then you need to cover them, and any injuries that may occur, not being argumentative for the sake of it but he’d be an upgrade on them 2 at least from what I’ve seen at the low price he’d be available for 🤷🏼‍♂️ I’d like to hear what Mark thinks of him, I can only go on what short clips I’ve seen of him

Agree Ed, it’s a non runner for me and just sounds like lazy journalism to me, a bit like rashida or whatever his name is. the brooks rumours interest me much more tbh, I’d like king aswel,

I did give my opinion on Grenier before Ally, when this rumour was doing the rounds before.
He is a good player, but I’m not sure he’s featured that much for Rennes this season. It’s been a while since I’ve seen him play to be honest.
I remember him from his days at Lyon, but that was 3 or 4 seasons ago now mate. He was good technically, and useful for the set pieces, a bit like Hourihane in that respect. He did however have far more involvement in games than Hourihane, and was one of the major figures in the Lyon midfield.
As Ed said though, he is getting on a bit now and that doesn’t really fit our owners’ model for the club.
If Ross Barkley doesn’t become a permanent feature, personally I would rather we went for Dele Ali or somebody of similar age and ability.

Thanks Mark, only thing I’d say is it wouldn’t hurt to have a bit of experience in the squad too, I’m assuming the fella has played quite a bit of Champions League too playing for Lyon?

Indeed Ally, a wealth of experience including Champions league football with Lyon and with Rennes this season.
He’s actually featured more for Rennes just recently than I thought, and scored in their last game.
I see that Big Sam wants him, he’s definitely far too good for the Tesco bags😂.

😂 @Mark, he’s a better option than Barkley at £30M that’s being quoted, if Barkley was £15M then it would be a no brainer.
