‘Inter, Arsenal, Real…I will take the fun everywhere!

‘These are great clubs.

‘If the coach calls you and tells you he wants you to make you play, especially a French coach, it changes everything.

‘The important thing for me is getting playing time for the France team.’

This is what Arsenal target Yann M’Vila was reported to have told French TV station Canal +.

A clear come and get me plea from the Rennes midfielder to Arsene Wenger?

Well it certainly seems that way as the 21-year-old hints at wanting to play under a French boss should he leave Rennes, and they don’t come any better that Mr. Wenger.

The France international still has three years remaining on his existing deal at Rennes but is highly likely to depart the Ligue 1 outfit in the summer, as suggested and accepted by boss Frediric Antonetti last month.

The highly-rated defensive midfielder nearly made a move to Arsenal last summer, but decided to remain at the Ligue 1 club for at least another season.

It will, in my opinion, be very difficult to acquire M’Vila, especially with Inter and Real also vying for his signature this summer.

But I think his latest comments to the press have put Arsenal in pole position, as admitted he would like to play under a French coach to aid his progress and chances in the national side.

I would certainly welcome him to the club should he decide to make this switch, but who will be dropped from our midfield to accommodate him! I guess we can worry about this when or if he signs for us.

In any case, hopefully M’Vila’s comments will spur Wenger to step up his interest in the midfield enforcer.
