Tottenham to sign M’Vila?

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.

Officials from Tottenham and Rennes are wrangling over the deal, with Rennes insisting on the full value up front while Spurs want to pay some at a later date.

Arsenal fans will be wondering what is happening and will want to know who, if anyone, Wenger will be adding to the squad. The French manager has suggested that there could be additions to the squad, but will it all be left to the last minute again? I hope Arsenal have a nice surprise or two for us Gooners this week.

    I will say nothing till I see who wenger buys or has in mind,the only reason I will take is ifhe buys already established epl players like cabaye, dembele,felliani,or tiote.

    But If he signs for them it’s because we do not want him not because he chose them! Also it sums spuds up that they sell a good creative midfielder then buy a defensive midfielder in his place! Once again a player that arsenal have been interested in for a long time so spurs want him, they let us do their scouting!

    We have sold 3 players for 43 million and we naught 3 for 38 million. We are definately the only big club in the world that makes profit in the transfer window. We could not even keep Song who wanted only 70k , we loose important players over 5k wages. United let go park , Owen and Limburger to free up 200k which went to RVP. Well that’s top management. If we let go CHamark park arshavin squilachi and bandner that will free up 280k a week of wages. It amazes me how we could not givea key player like Song 70 k. Say what u want that’s just greed. Who won’t leave when they play every game and diaby earns morethan them. Are arsenal really ambitious? We didn’t buy giroud for squad depth but to replace RVP, really GLADiz? I don’t want to sound to negative but where is our transfer budjet? Cuz so far we just replaced key players . That’s not good enough to change for the title. To be in the top 4 well we could try but to challenge we stand no chance with this squad.

    This is ridiculous I’ve been saying for a while now that Spurs go after any player were after or that use to play for us It’s pretty ridiculous(Adebayor,Gallas,Bentley/Vertongen,M Vila,etc). The thing is although I like M Vila as a player I think Wenger lost interest completely after Euro 2012 when he came of the bench and didn’t shake Laurent Blanc’s hand,I personally think Ettiene Capoue is a better fit for Arsenal and cheaper so I hope at least that still happens. Still though just signing a defender is not going to cut it Wenger,if anything I think our defense looks like it needs the least amount of help with Kosielny,and Sagna coming back soon,and with Steve Bould clearly doing a good job organising the D(what was Pat Rice doing the last few years?). If we can’t get Ettiene Capoue and a striker still I will be extremely disappointed (Dembele,Dempsey,Loric Remy<there's plenty available for a reasonable price that can help)

    Blimey, some of us gooners are soooooooo arrogant. If M’Vila is such a good player do you not think Spurs scouts might know this already. Just because we get linked with players but Spurs sign them doesn’t mean they just follow our scouts around. We get linked with well known top quality players, so of course others will get them, we can’t sign everyone we get linked with otherwise for once we would have this big squad Wenger keeps on about! I for one would be annoyed if Spurs get M’Vila as I really rate him, but maybe Wenger has others in mind. If we sign no one and M’Vila goes to Spurs that is a different matter.

    Arsenal didn’t lose Alex song because we wouldn’t pay him what he wants, he was sold because he would not do his job, yes he did excellent last year, but he was supposed to be a dm, he wasn’t doing his job, he was always being caught up the wrong end of the pitch, also he was reported to have a bad attitude in training, being late and lazy so believe winger finally had enough

    It’s not a ‘transfer battle’ as we are not in for him!

    Don’t get carried away with what journalists and ‘pundits’ say. It’s not he end of the world if someone like M’Vila doesn’t come in. Arteta has shown that he is more than capable of bing a dynamic midfielder that can give you both defensive cover and creativity going forward. He and Ack will be a great midfield two.

    If Arsene doesn’t want M’Vila, it’s or a good reason, either a footballing one or attitude (he’s French after all so Arsene will know more than most).

    I truly hope Wenger gets M’Vila and if he doesn’t it better be because we’re in for Tiote, Cabaye, Capoue etc. Bottom line is a DM better be on his way in. M’Vila seems to tick all the usual Wenger boxes but his attitude problems/history just might be the stumbling block on the transfer.

    I’ll be very upset to see him playing in the EPL for anyone other than Arsenal. It will be another player we “missed” that we’re forced to watch and see just how good they are (Mata, Hazard, etc.), especially when it comes back to haunt us when we play the team he goes to.

    Mr silent stan promised us to use 50 mil in this summer, but we used 38 and gained around 48 from players sale. arsenal once again never kept their promise, i hope from the 60mil we have to invest at list in one difenser and midfilder and sell arshavin, chamackh, park, squallici, bendtner and denelson. so we will save at list around 400k from this players.
    if we buy one defender and one CDM, and if possible ST then we will have 25 player + 3 new signing, we can register coquelin, frimpong and vito manone as a youth players and we must give players like thomas esf.., henderson, yennaries, aneke som game time.
    then we will have a good squad

    but is it possible to determinate sponsership, coz 6mil from the staduim is a small amout of money considering city getting 40 mil, also kit sponser is at 5.5 while all city, manu and liverpool are at 20 mil,and barca 30 and spuds 11mil.

    hope we change sponsers we can’t get 6mil from the staduim for 13 years from now, and 5,5 for the kit for 2 years from now. just terminate the contract then we will get real money around 70 mil from staduim and kit a year and championsleague money, league and cup money will make as the best team fanantial as ever

    Even with the current injuries we have plenty of options. If Arteta gets injured then Diaby (he’s currently ok), Coquelin and Ramsey can all do that job and with Jack & Frimpong to come back, we have more than enough options in the middle. Don’t forget Cazorla is In the middle this year and The Ox will be in there too… And Rosisky to one back.

    Centre mid isn’t a problem this season… Too many of us fans are getting carried away with the media hyperbole.

    Hate to say it but this season will be a VERY tough one too even get in the champions league. As much of an incredible job AW is doing with the players we have and it is a ‘good squad’ It’s not as good as the two c**ts of Manchester and even Chelsea. Yes we are far superior to spurs and Liverpool buT small teams see draws at Liverpool and spurs as good results. At a draw at arsenal is an outstanding one, therefore teams will attack more at spurs and Liverpool and be hit on the break. That’s something that has to be taken into consideration. Also Liverpool will get better at the brenden Rodgers style of play. We may end up outside of Europe. Yes that’s terrible of course but it may give the board the kick up the ass they need.

    If Spurs are going to sign Mvila and not Arsenal, then it’s because Wenger does not want him, not because Spurs have beaten Arsenal to his signature. Wenger said on his arrival in Asia that he was not interested in him, and since then he has never said anything about him. It’s only the papers that are insistent on that. Wenger does know M’vila more than any of us, so if he chooses not to sign him, it’s because he is not the player he fancies, and has his eyes set on someone else. Why don’t you trust your manager, Gooners? He knows more players probably than any other football manager in the world, and not everyone he has brought to Arsenal you knew before, so just wait other than straining yourself over things that are completely out of your control. I think it would be wise that way, wouldn’t it?

    @Galen You talk about Song like Arsenal has done wrong. The player spent the last 8 months trying to get a sit down to negotiate a new deal with THREE YEARS still left on his contract. Add those 8 months and that is almost FOUR YEARS left on his contract. Why would a p,layer be hassling the club and threatening the club with ultimatums with so much time on his current contract … EXACTLY … because he’s a player who doesn’t honour a contract which was agreed upon by him and signed by him. If he’s not honouring that contract then why are you going to entertain giving him another contract???????

    Wenger this week has echoed what we’ve been saying ourselves for two seasons, that Song did not carry out his DM duties satisfactory … in other words he was too bust forgetting he was a DM and thinking he’s an attacking midfielder. It was bad enough seeing Veramelen doing those crazy runs, but for Song to be out of position so much at the same time increased the threat.

    You really are a moronic ignoramus aren’t you?

    Statistics mean nothing, they can tell you want you want them to tell you.

    Every team has injuries of course but if a player is now fit, you can’t say ‘well he’s never played more than…!’ look at RVP last year, 7 seasons injured but then ok. If we keep thinking players will be injured, we’ll never keep any players!

    Diaby is class when he gets a run of games, Coquelin played more last year than ever (and he’s versatile) and we all know when Jack’s back, he’s one of the best around.

    With ‘football manager fans’ like your knuckle scraping self, we would be buying everyone under the sun. Look at it objectively and you’ll see that so far ths season we have been solid defensively and the issue has been creativity which will come as the new boys gel.

    You’re the type of ‘fan’ that boos the team at half time and when we misplace a pass… And leaves before the final whistle. You don’t deserve to support our great club…

    M Vila to Tottenham so what, he’ll be fighting with Scott Parker in no time(literally probably even the way there going trying to buy anyone to help). As far as the other players where linked too Tiote, Wenger is not going to buy from Newcastle he’s no better then Frimpong,or Coquelin.

    The only player that makes sense is Ettiene Capoue a physical presence that tackles everything and everyone who we can also get for cheaper then M Vila he could even play center back.

    And one more thing I read today which I found interesting I’m a huge fan of Mousa Dembele and would love for him to come to Arsenal and as I remember Wenger has allready looked into it 3 months ago :

    Manchester City and Chelsea have cooled on Dembele, but Arsenal cannot be ruled out after registering their interest in the player at the end of last season.<Read this earlier,in my opinion if Wenger thinks he can move him back to being a striker he would be a perfect replacement for R*P which clearly Wenger's allready looked into.

    Cretin!

    Firstly, please use grammar and punctuation as it makes you look even more stupid than you are… Plus stop using numbers rather than words (unless your vocabulary is that limited… Actually that probably is the case).

    When will you learn that the new boys aren’t direct replacements for RVP, no one would have been. We need to spread the responsibility around and the goals will come. You can always say that other players scored on their debuts blah blah blah but that’s the lazy option… As is saying that if we had RVP this year, he would have scored (he didn’t score in the 1st two games last year as well remember?). If I remember correctly, Bergkamp didn’t score for the first 8 games for the club and he wasn’t too bad was he?!… You probably didn’t support Arsenal in those days as we weren’t winning much.

    Now go back to the pub will you and keep listening to talksport & lazy journalists.

He said that the quality of players he has is already enough n he’s comfortable. I dnt understand why we keep having high hopes wen the manager n the board are only interested in balancing the book. So M’Villa ain’t AFC bound bt mark my words if he comes, then the squad will be awesome n Arteta can go forward n give assist until then the rest are rumour.

    Trust me Wenger is not looking for anyone from the look of things, after all he repaced RVP with Podolski and did not reveal it, he said song was not going anywhere and the following day he was sold,Sahin was a ploy to make the Arsenal fans forget the sale of Song, i may be wrong but i am sceptical, Arsenal is in the business of keeping the profits, by now Arsenal would have strengthened, All players punted eg llorente (its quite), Sahin ?,Mvilla tiote etc is just a wish list playing with Arsenal fans emotions, with 4 days left forget it,Arsenal will always try to play for no 4 and make some decent profits, not win anything, i have to be proven wrong. Wenger is an intelligent coach but seemed to be more of a financial manager than a soccer coach this nowadays, i love him though he brings more heartache, he must sign a top striker, a miedfield and two defenders, what is he doing with Jourouw on the bench i am not a coach but will not let him trott the field he is a poor defender.

    I did nt think if wenger replace song. If u luk stoke city game the problem was the cm. The song place and the only who can fit z mvila bt always we know who z Arsene wenger. An economist man. He wil only regret after he lose and moarn the funs. We only nid mvila and may b a striker. No neds of attacking mildfieders as we have ramsey, Roscky, arteta, carzola, wilshere and diaby. Ols Denilson to loan was hurting as he was creative man 4 arsenal bt wenger put him dark. Wenger is sleeping nw bt he wil the truth

    Why would he go to the Spuds? They treat their players like sh!t. Levy is a complete and utter wank.

    a little patience required with the new signings but the goals will come and we will have a good season.
    Top priority is Song replacement. Mr. Wenger why are you holding back on M’Villa? He is your man and please grab him before Tottenham do. Excellent stopper and good distribution. If you do not want him which established
    player do you replace Song with? Hopefully not Oxelade C
    as is being muted. We need him elsewhere. Second priority
    reduce wage bill be getting rid of Bendtner..Denilson..
    Sqillaci..Chamak etc. Third priority NEVER AGAIN allow
    the club to be “held over a barrel” by the likes of
    Fabrigas..Nasri..RVP..Song..Clichy..etc Longer contracts
    and adjust pay according to ability and not in last minute
    desperation. The last 2 season ends have been a very sad
    time with the departures. All your good development on
    them wasted and we always seem to be on the receiving end
    by paying a lot for incomers and not getting enough for the outgoing. I doubt we will make the top 4 after reading
    what the opposition are doing in the transfer market but
    I hope I am wrong. Good luck to the club I have supported
    for 70+ years and have a good season with no serious injuries this time around.

    After following the transfer window everyday since it first opened, Wenger has done with our attacking options. As he said there will be no panic buys, would hopefully expect some transfer action tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest.

    Arsenal are not gonna win f all again this season as gazidis is a clown and he don’t want Wenger to sign anyone that’s why he takes the puss when doing transfer dealings. So then arsene has to lie like an idiot and say that we dont really want this player or that player. All gazidis and the board care about is profit. Name we any team in the epl who sells there best players every season. Not one team, apart from US. To them it’s every player has a price. Can u see man ure or Chelsea sell there players to us not a chance but we would. So my fellow gunners look forward to another shit season.

    Not sure why Tottenham are after M’Vila. If anything they need a new GK, CB, LB, RB, CDM, CM, CAM, RM, LM, CF, manager, stadium, manager and history…..

    We can buy good players, we already had 3 and more will come.

    Regarding M’vila I do understand AW’s choice. He’s a sulker and has well documented attitude problems.

    you guys have been obsessed with mvila all summer, you seem to be treating him like some sort of messiah. get over it, he’s not that great, he lacks experience and he doesn’t even speak english. why do you rate him so highly?
