Lyon midfielder Clement Grenier is on Andre Villas-Boas’ radar, with the star also being chased by Real Madrid, according to the Daily Express.

Grenier has starred for Lyon since moving into the senior side in 2008, and the 20-year-old has drawn interest from numerous European clubs as a result.

Chelsea in particular want to bring Grenier on board, the paper claims, because they see him as a future star.


While Real Madrid have shown interest in him, with Zinedine Zidane showing a particular interest in the youngster, Chelsea have reportedly sent scouts to a few matches to France to watch Grenier in action.

In particular, Chelsea are said to admire Grenier’s talent from set pieces, and quick ball skills.
