In a dramatic turnaround Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that he has no intentions to sign his supposed summer target Yann M’Vila.
The Rennes star has been repeatedly linked with the Gunners this transfer window and was believed to be gradually inching close to a move. The 22 year old has been involved in a verbal row with former French manager Laurent Blanc and the incident apparently has forced Wenger to cool off his interest in him.
The disciplinary issues which the midfielder has managed to get involved in recently purportedly forced Arsenal thinktank to change their decision. However, Wenger left a window of hope for the Frenchman after conceding that he might consider buying if youngstars Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby do not get fit in time for the start of season.
“No [I am not interested in M’Vila]. We wait on Diaby and Wilshere,” Wenger told the club’s official website. “When you look we have Alex Song, Aaron Ramsey, Francis Coquelin, Wilshere, Mikel Arteta and Diaby.
“In defensive midfielders and box-to-box players we are not short if they are all coming back.
“If we have setbacks in pre-season it could be different.”
