Lyon midfielder Clement Grenier (pictured right) is set to reject a move to Malaga in favour of staying at the Ligue 1 giants, according to reports.
La Opinion de Malaga cites a report in L’Equipe that the 26-year-old wants to fight for his place at Les Gones despite the club accepting an offer of €4m from the Andalucians.
Having been capped five times by France, the attacking midfielder joined Roma on loan in January last season but made only six appearances for the Italians, who did not renew the deal.
Malaga have yet to replace Pablo Fornals, who exited to Villarreal last month and were hopeful on a deal for Grenier, whose contract in France expires in June 2018.
