Arsene Wenger denies interest in Rennes midfielder Yann M'Vila
Monday 23 July 2012
Arsene Wenger insists he is not looking to sign Rennes midfielder Yann
M'Vila, but admits any injury setbacks during the summer may lead him to
reconsider his options.
The Gunners have been persistently linked with a move for M'Vila, but Wenger has no concrete plans to sign the 22-year-old France international as he feels he has strength in depth in the midfield department.
However, the situation could change depending on what happens this summer and in the recoveries of Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby from their long-term injuries.
"No [I am not interested in M'Vila]. We wait on Diaby and Wilshere," Wenger told the club's official website, http://www.arsenal.com.
"When you look we have Alex Song, Aaron Ramsey, Francis Coquelin, Wilshere, Mikel Arteta and Diaby.
"In defensive midfielders and box-to-box players we are not short if they are all coming back.
"If we have setbacks in pre-season it could be different."
