Arsenal Face Competition In M’Vila Search

The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s efforts to sign French defensive midfielder Yann M’Vila will have to increase if the Gunners are planning on landing the 21-year-old star because Italian giants Inter Milan have also eyed him.

At a very fragile age M’Vila managed to become Rennes’ icon and an all important player for the French senior national squad with his amazing performances. The defensive security and his excellent through balls make him one of the best on his position in the world, but despite all this he’s still playing for a small club.

Arsenal have attempted to transfer him in the summer and then again in the winter but all attempts were blocked by Rennes who wanted to sell him for more money after the EURO 2012 championship from the summer.

Now that Inter Milan are also on his trail the Frenchman will surely be sold for a lot of money but it’s going to become even harder for Wenger to convince him to join.

M’Vila’s contract is still due to run until 2015, but the French club are rumoured to be prepared to let him go for a fee of £22m in the summer. Given that the Gunners only have Song and Coquelin on the defensive midfielder role this seems like a highly probable move.

Should Wenger try and bring him to Arsenal this summer?

  1. They also have Frimpong. Arsenal need to strengthen in other areas, especially in attack.

  2. Buy him. Song gave the ball away alot last night and his challenges were always poor. Been saying for a while now to my dad and now he agrees with me

  3. NdI think is spoilt for choice in the defensive midfield area with the experienced Song, hardworking Coquelin, Frimpong and almost fit again Diaby. We urgently need to sign a centre back like Venthoghen and a good creative midfielder in d mould of Gotze or Hazard and we will be fine.

  4. If funds were unlimitted i’d say buy him because he’s obviously an exceptional talent but the reinforcements are needed in attacking areas first. It all depends on how much money is generated from sales in the summer.
