Arsenal’s target Yann M’Vila suffered an injury in France’s international friendly against Belgium and is currently under observation. The defensive midfielder was wanted by Wenger in the summer and is expected to receive another offer from the Emirates in January if he will recover fast.
The irony is that M’Vila got injured in a clash with Lille’s Eden Hazard, another target for Arsenal. Hazard has also received offers from Wenger in the summer but after recent statements the player is more likely to join Barcelona or Real Madrid rather than Arsenal.
The French defensive midfielder jumped with Hazard for a ball, but got over the Belgian player and fell on the back of his neck from quite a height. He was unable to get up and the medical team got him out on a stretcher with a neck brace to stabilize his neck and prevent any further injuries.
After the match French officials declared that a neurological consult went well and that there was no problem, but the international midfielder was taken to the hospital nevertheless.
