Arsene Wenger might be able to announce two new Arsenal players this week. The general manager of Yann M’Vila’s current club Rennes, Pierre Dreossi, has dropped a massive hint that he expects M’Vila to become a Gunner by the end of the week.
“Arsenal? Maybe, you’ll have to call Arsene. But when Song leaves, we must say that Arsenal will reinforce that post.”
In his interview with French radio station RMC, Dreossi claimed that three clubs were vying for the services of the French international. Arsenal, Tottenham and Zenit St. Petersburg are the clubs, according to Goal,com. There have been reports that M’Vila does not want to go to a club who are not in the Champion’s league and he has already stated his desire to play in the Premier league.
Dreossi seems to think that the deal will soon be done but is insisting that Rennes are still sticking to their valuation of around 20 million euros. We will see about that when Wenger puts his negotiating head on.
“I think it will be done by the end of this week or the beginning of next.”
What a great boost for Arsenal fans and the team if Wenger can announce M’Vila soon and erase the bad taste that the sales of Robin van Persie and Alex Song have left in the mouth of Gooners everywhere.
