Arsenal might be close to landing French midfielder Yann M’Vila, as Rennes’ general manager Pierre Dreossi has declared that Arsene Wenger needs to find a timely replacement for the loss of Cameroon midfielder Alex Song.
According to the Rennes official, the Ligue 1 club is currently negotiating with three clubs, and Arsenal might be the destination for M’Vila this summer, after almost two whole seasons of rumours linking the London club with a move for the French defensive midfielder.
‘For the moment we have three offers.
‘There is even a chance Yann could stay at Rennes this year but now Alex Song has left Arsenal we must say they will reinforce that post.’
Arsenal’s game seems to be suffering in midfield, where the Gunners don’t seem to be themselves without Wilshere, Rosicky and Song. Diaby’s recovery was fortunate for Wenger, but neither him nor Aaron Ramsey seem to be ready to play at the top level, and while Diaby played a good defensive game against Stoke, his offensive contribution was null compared to those Song used to have last season.
Arsene Wenger also claimed that the build-up play is the reason for Arsenal’s goalless streak, so we might expect an attacking midfielder to join the Gunners, despite the fact that Wilshere will be back soon.
