France international Yann M’Vila recently admitted he’s in no rush to leave Rennes despite intense interest from Arsenal.
The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for the defensive midfielder since the start of the summer break, but Arsene Wenger did quash these rumours claiming he is not in the market for M’Vila.
M’Vila has attracted interest from the likes of Inter Milan and Barcelona in the past month or so, but has newly stated that he is happy to stay in France with Rennes for the time being:
‘For the moment, I am here, I am well, I’m not complaining, I play’
‘I must play good matches. While I am here, I am [at] the disposal of the coach and I must do the best possible.’
‘The transfer window ends on September 4, so I will not lose my head.
‘If I must stay another year or more, I will stay.
‘If I must go, that’s life. But if I stay here, I will be 100 per cent concentrated.’
In my opinion M’Vila would make a good addition to the squad and would settle well at Arsenal due to all the French connections. But with Wenger already ruling out a move for him and the player himself content with life at Rennes, this move doesn’t look at all plausible at present.
I just hope Wenger has a plan up his sleeve if Song departs.
