Arsenal’s top target Yann M’Vila snubbed the rumours which were saying that this is surely his last season with the French club Rennes, as the interest for him increases.
M’Vila was wanted by Arsenal ever since last summer but his transfer has yet to be accomplished because the French officials want to get more for him after he’ll play for his national team squad at the EURO 2012.
Despite Arsenal’s interest in him both in the summer and in January, and despite other clubs interest like Real Madrid, Barcelona or Liverpool, the defensive midfielder stated: “I never stated it would be my last season at Rennes.”
His contract with the Ligue 1 side runs until the end of the 2014-2015 season and at 21 years-old he has enough time to catch a transfer even if he stays until the end of his contract in France.
Wenger wants to transfer him especially after the Gunners’ up-and-coming defensive midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong injured himself and will be unavailable for at least 8 months. The young starlet’s injury means that Arsene will only be able to rely on Coquelin to replace Song, and he’s highly likely to bring M’Vila in the summer.
