Unless you follow the transfer rumours really closely then you may not be aware that Arsenal have supposedly held talks with French Ligue 2 outfit Auxerre about a player joining the Gunners. The man in question is Paul-Georges Ntep and there has been a suggestion from France that he has already agreed a move to north London. .......Read the full article here
Today it is being reported that Arsenal and Arsene Wenger are set to rekindle interest in Yann M’Vila. M’Vila was last season’s biggest transfer fiasco for Arsenal after Robin Van Persie last season, with the Frenchman tipped to join the Gunners by many top European journalists, only for the defensive midfielder to stay at Rennes before linking up with Russian club Rubin Kazan in the winter transfer window. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal are in danger of watching as all of the potential signings get snapped up by other Premier league clubs. I don’t understand what we are waiting for. Maybe Arsene Wenger does not want to get his pants pulled down over transfer fees, but Arsenal need some players and we don’t want to be left to pick over the players that other teams have left. .......Read the full article here
Arsene Wenger has been watching Yann M’Vila for a long time, but has never decided to bring him to Arsenal before. Reports from the French midfielder and his club, Rennes, indicate that he will probably be moving in this transfer window, so it is a case of now or never for Wenger to recruit him as a Gunner, but is he worth the risk? .......Read the full article here
Maybe Arsenal need to employ the man from Del Monte when it comes to transfer dealings, because Arsene Wenger does not seem to want anyone. Demba Ba was too much like Olivier Giroud, apparently, and now he has turned down a cut price deal for the talented French midfield enforcer Yann M’Vila. Wenger is fluent in many languages, but he does not seem to know the words yes please in any of them. .......Read the full article here
There are reports that the 22-year old French international Yann M’Vila may finally be making the move to the Premier league that has long been expected. The defensive midfielder was thought to be on his way to the Emirates last summer, but stories about his discipline problems off the field, compounded by his falling out with the France manager Laurent Blanc at Euro 2012 caused Arsene Wenger to have second thoughts. .......Read the full article here
Reports are now suggesting that Arsenal are trying to broker a loan deal for Chelsea’s 29-year old midfielder Michael Essien, while Rennes now expect Yann M’Vila to still be at the club for the foreseeable future.
The Rennes chairman said last week that there were bids from two Premier league clubs and from Zenit St. Petersburg in Russia. Apparently, pny Zenit’s bid was acceptable to the French club, but the player rejected that move. Tottenham were thought to have bid around £12 million and refused to go higher, then stated that they were looking elsewhere. .......Read the full article here
The France and Rennes midfielder Yann M’Vila has been variously linked with both Arsenal and Tottenham ever since the transfer window opened, and it was thought that Spurs had jumped in after finally completing the sale of Luka Modric to Real Madrid, but according to the Rennes manager Frederic Antonetti there is still no concrete bids on the table.
“We have had some contact but nothing more than that. The more time goes on the more we can think he will stay.” Antonetti said yesterday. “Now, as I have been saying for some time, we know Yann could still go in the final week of the transfer window.” .......Read the full article here
Yann M’Vila – a French lad who we seem to have been linked with since the beginning of time. The youngster has been labeled the new Patrick Viera due to the fact they both play in the defensive midfield role, they are both French and not much else! Put his attitude problem aside he has got everything going for him. He’s only 21 and has got international caps for France under his belt and is undoubtedly talented. However the fact of the matter is that we do not need him. .......Read the full article here
Arsene Wenger has admitted that Arsenal are still “in the market” to try and add “quality players” to the squad, but he made it quite clear (unless he was being economical with the truth) that he is NOT looking for any defensive midfielders, which would seem to rule out any bid for Yann M’Vila.
“I’m pleased with what I have but yes, I anticipate doing something still, we’re still in the market,” Wenger told Sky Sports. “Defensive midfielders we have. I don’t know yet, it depends on the quality of players that are available, it’s not necessity. If we find someone who can strengthen our squad with the quality that we want we’ll do it in any position.” .......Read the full article here
After finally agreeing to sell Croatian midfielder Luka Modric to Real Madrid today, Spurs have launched a bid to sign Yann M’Vila from Rennes. The 22-year old defensive midfielder was thought to be right at the top of Arsene Wenger’s wish list at the start of the summer, but nothing has been heard for a while from the Arsenal camp.
The French international was believed to be holding out for a move to the Emirates because of Wenger and champion’s league football, but with the window about to close, he may have to accept that the Gunners are not coming for him. BBC journalist David Ornstein reports that another Premier league club have officially shown interest but that the club is NOT Arsenal. .......Read the full article here
There has already been plenty said about Mr. Sahin. He looked as if he was about to sign for Liverpool, then we hijacked the deal. Then he looked as if he had already signed for us, and now there are reports that Liverpool have come in and hijacked OUR deal. WTF? So I have decided that, for the moment, I’m going to focus on something else; namely, the deal involving Yann M’Vila. A no less confusing saga, mark you, but at least it’s different to that mind boggling Sahin deal. .......Read the full article here
