Milan and Torino are the favourites to sign Clement Grenier from Olympique Lyonnais, writes L’Equipe.
The 25-year-old midfielder had already been linked with Sunderland and Palermo in recent months.
“Grenier will not be in our squad this season,” announced President Jean-Michel Aulas.
“During our last meeting he made some requests that were difficult to accept. I don’t know if he did it on purpose, but from that moment on he was for sale. It’s as if he asked to leave.”
