Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger has been watching Rennes defensive midfielder Yann M’Vila and has even submitted a transfer fee in the summer after Fabregas and Nasri left.
Rumours have it that the Frenchman submitted a fee of £20million for the young star, but this was snubbed by the League 1 side who weren’t interested in selling the defensive midfielder.
The Mirror states that Arsenal will now have to play a better bidding game in January or in the Summer if they want to transfer M’Vila because Real Madrid is now on the wire and the Spanish club seems ready to meet any transfer demands Rennes might have.
The French club want to sell M’Vila at a bigger price so they are most likely to wait until after the EURO 2012 where the 21-year-old will be representing his country in a group against England.
If France will have a good performance at the EURO and M’Vila will play every game his transfer fee is expected to go over £30million after the tournament is over, and Wenger is unlikely to be opened to spend that much money on a transfer if we think about what he spent in the past.
