Morning Gooners. A lot of transfer news doing the rounds today as Arsenal are linked with a double swoop for Yann M’Vila and Junior Hoilett.
News of a deal for M’Vila broke last night on Twitter and those rumours seem to have been verified as several sources run the story today, although there is some contention over the finer details.
Goal.com suggest a €22m (£17.7m) fee has been agreed between Arsenal and Rennes, with the 21-year-old will ready to sign a four-year contract, but the deal is dependant on Arsenal qualifying for next seasons Champions League. However, other reports claim that the deal will go through shortly after the West Brom game irrespective of whether we qualify for the Champions League or not.
It would make sense that a record deal like this would only go through if Arsenal were to secure a spot in the lucrative Champions League, so lets just beat West Brom and sign this lad, because he’s a proper defensive midfielder and he’d be a great signing.

The Daily Mail also run the M’Vila story but they are also reporting that we’re stepping up our interest in Junior Hoilett, who is available on a free transfer this summer.
Hoilett would be a replacement for Andrey Arshavin, who is likely to make his move to Zenit St. Petersburg permanent in the summer, but there is a lot of competition for the Blackburn winger.
