Arsenal Recieve Huge Boost In M’Vila Pursuit

By on June 18, 2012

The summer transfer window is open and Football Talk will bring you all the latest transfer news doing the rounds in the papers. Today, Arsenal receive boost in their pursuit of Yann M’Vila.

Yann M'Vila

Arsenal have received a huge boost in their pursuit of midfielder Yann M’Vila after the player admitted his interest in joining the Gunners.

M’Vila is currently away on international duty with the French squad at Euro 2012  and has already declared his intention to leave current club Rennes this summer.

Several reports over the past few weeks have suggested that Arsenal are on the verge of landing the 21-year-old, with the Telegraph claiming a £17.7m deal was all but secured.

The Gunners hopes of signing the midfielder have been boosted further after the player has been quoted by ESPN as saying he likes Arsenal and would be interested in a move to the Emirates:

“I have heard Arsenal are interested in me,” M’Vila told the Daily Star Sunday. “I like Arsenal and I like the Premier League.

“I don’t know what is happening with the clubs, but yes, I would be interested in the Premier League and Arsenal.”

The powerful defensive midfielder played in all 38 league games for Rennes last season and has become a regular since moving to the club in 2009.

FT Verdict

This is the first time M’Vila has openly admitted he wants to join Arsenal and it’s the clearest indication yet that a move is a distinct possibility.

    Why in every transfer market appears the hot and promising news that some of tallented names(players) are coming to arsenal but at the end we find them joining other clubs?.

      All those players are on £130k per wk plus that’s why. Yet are greedy players looking for quick money.

    Arsenal have more than enough money to purchase yann. Specially if they get rid of Bentner, denilson, vela, scillachi etc. I just hope things are happening in the back ground to secure this players services, because song cannot be the only quality defensive midfielder we have.
