The 21-year old French midfielder Yann M’Vila would be an ideal signing to accompany Alex Song as a holding midfield player for the Gunners. M’Vila is described by his club, Rennes, as a player who possesses “excellent defensive abilities” and “impressive physical strength”. It helps Wenger that the Frenchman has expressed his interest in Arsenal. “I don’t know what is happening with the clubs, but yes, I would be interested in the Premier League and Arsenal” he is quoted as saying. After the losses of Fabregas and Nasri last season in the midfield, Arsenal need to sign some quality players in the middle of the park if they want to contend for the title this season. Even though the industrious midfielder doesn’t pose much attacking threat, he would be a rock in front of the back four to help solidify the Gunners’ defence and provide a platform for the more attacking players to go from.
