Arsenal Rumours: Agent reveals Arsenal have made no contact over M’Vila, speculation growing over Lucas Biglia

| January 8, 2013 | 3 Comments

Despite reports from the media, the agent of French rebel Yann M’Vila has revealed that Arsenal have not tried to make contact with Rennes over the French defensive midfielder.

The young Frenchman has been hotly linked with Arsenal since the summer, although nothing ever came to fruition with M’Vila’s off-field antics proving a stumbling block for a move to the Emirates.

With it being the January window predictably reports have surfaced once again, particularly given that Arsenal clearly need a pure defensive midfielder and that M’Vila is likely to be sold at a cut-price, but it seems Wenger may still be twiddling his thumbs on this one.

M’Vila’s agent is quoted as saying by Goal.com:

There is interest from a lot of clubs. Yann has a good contract at Rennes – it is possible that we can stay there and be patient.

Every transfer window we are asked about Arsenal because of what the newspapers say, but I have not spoken to them about Yann.

While QPR are a clear interested party, it is reported M’Vila is not interested in being recruited by the Premier League strugglers, which is certainly understandable.

From one defensive midfielder to the next, Arsenal have also been linked with a previous transfer target Lucas Biglia. The Argentine player, who currently plies his trade for Anderlecht, has indicated he wants to move this January, which reportedly has Wenger on alert.

Looking at both options, it certainly looks to be a choice between a risky signing that could be potentially very great or very disastrous and a safe bet who is more than likely to be a solid performer.

Personally I would like to see M’Vila at the Emirates as he is already a good player plus his talent and current potential is something Wenger could certainly nurture into something great. This did, after all, happen with the once rebellious Van Persie…….eventually.

What do you guys think? Despite Arteta’s valiant attempt as a defensive midfielder, we clearly need some big ugly guy to boss things in midfield. Feel free to leave a comment below!
