Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger denies interest in Rennes midfielder Yann M'Vila

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.

<b>Yann M'Vila, 21 (France)</b><br/>
The Rennes player is a key part of Laurent Blanc's new look France side. M'Vila has been described as the archetypal defensive midfielder with very few flaws in his game. He is a strong, disciplined and reliable player who can dominate his opponents and control the midfield with excellent distribution. M'Vila was expected to leave French club Rennes last summer but decided a move the season before the European Championships could jeopardise his chances of selection. Although M'Vila signed a contract extension last year, it is highly unlikely that he will remain in France after the tournament with his value said to be €22m.

Yann M'Vila interested in Arsenal switch

Defensive midfielder Yann M’Vila is seemingly keen on a move to Arsenal, and is urging the north London club to get ready to make an offer as soon as Euro 2012 comes to an end in July.
