Could Yann M’Vila finally make his long-awaited move to Arsenal this month? It could just happen you know Gooners!
Sky Sports News are reporting that Rennes have come out today and confirmed that the midfielder wants to leave the club this month and a move to England is a distinct possibility. The French outfit are keen to hang on to him, but they will sell if the deal is right.
Rennes general manager Pierre Dreossi admitted:
“Yes, he feels like leaving,”
“But it is not a priority for us to sell. If he has to leave, he will leave. But if it is not worth it for him or for us, he will stay until the end of the season.
“It is all moving towards England or Russia.”
The player himself has confirmed he wants a move and claims offers are already on the table for him, but stopped short of revealing the interested parties. He said:
“The club have received offers.
“I want to go but the deal has to be right for everyone. If it isn’t, I will stay until the end of the season.” M’Vila said
If your on Twitter you may well have seen a few journalists claiming Arsenal are in deep talks with Rennes and are trying to agree a fee, with the 22-year-old said to be available for around £7-£8 million.
The momentum is gathering pace and I for one hope we sign M’Vila soon. Sure he has his disciplinary issues but Wenger could sort him out and he’d be the powerhouse in midfield we desperately need.
What do you think Gooners? Do you want M’Vila??
