Grenier's decision made? -Wenger after £15m Bender -Klopp wants Podolski?

Morning Gooners.

There seem to be three main stories doing the rounds today.

First up in the Sunday Mirror, we have Lyon midfielder Clement Grenier telling the media he's made a decision about his future, more or less.

The midfielder said:
"I have more or less made a decision about which club I want to join. 
"I have made the choice for sporting reasons above all. Arsenal? It could well be them. 
"There would be competition for places, but you get that at all big clubs and it does not stop me making my decision. 
"I am still young, but I have always set myself targets and I do everything possible to exceed them."
The 22-year-old - who is valued at £8million - wouldn't be a big box office signing. But it appears he has all the characteristics of a player we need in our team. Plus he's the typical Arsene Wenger signing.

Another midfielder we've been linked to is Bayer Leverkusen's Lars Bender.

The Mail on Sunday believe Arsene Wenger is keen to add the German international to the squad.

The 24-year-old  is valued at £15m.

And finally, The Sun say Lukas Podolski is a target for Borussia Dortmund. There does seem to be rather a lot of smoke about Podolski leaving... But I can't believe the manager would want to sell him after just one season.

That's it for now. Got an extra post coming up later. Watch out for it.
