Arsene Wenger is thought to be looking to add some fresh blood to his midfield department, with Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini well past their prime.
And the latest reports have suggested the Professor is showing interest in two of his compatriots, with Clement Grenier and Morgan Schneiderlin reportedly on his radar.
The Lyon star has developed into one of Europe’s most talented midfielders and there is a chance he will be sold in the upcoming transfer window.
Meanwhile, Morgan Schneiderlin has proved his worth in English Premier League and he could follow Rickie Lambert and few other star players through the exit door at St Mary’s.
As Clement Grenier was forced to withdraw from the World Cup due to a groin injury, the Southampton star was drafted into the squad and he will be in contention for the opening game against Honduras, where les Blues are 2/5 favourites.
