With the Fabregas transfer money now in the bank and Arsenal looking extremely thin in midfield, it is no surprise that we are being linked with a move for a new central midfielder today. The Mirror is reporting that Arsene Wenger has added France international Yann M’Vila to his list of targets before the transfer window closes next week.
Now this is a player who excites me and the kind of addition we need to our squad. M’Villa is still only 21-years-old but he is already a full French international with 11 caps and a critical player for Rennes. The tough tackling midfielder would add some much needed steel to our midfielder alongside Song. We have not really been able to find a replacement for Vieira since he left but M’Villa could just be the answer.
It is suggested that M’Villa would cost in the region of £10million which is not bad at all considering Arsenal have not spent much this summer at all.
