Aulas warns Arsenal off Grenier move

Jean Michel Aulas has warned Arsenal that Lyon will do their utmost to keep Clement Grenier in France.

The midfielder has been Lyon's star man this season and Aulas rates Grenier in the same class as Mario Gotze.

"Clement said to me that he will give priority to Lyon if we qualify for the Champions League. So I prefer [to listen to] what he said, rather than what Arsene Wenger said," Aulas told Canal+.

"But, we have to make a financial effort to keep him. We will see after the level of our effort [that we have to do].

"If Arsene wants to have an idea of Grenier's price, I will tell him that it is the same as what Bayern Munich paid for Mario Gotze - around 37 million euros."
