Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is eyeing Rennes midfielder Yann M'Vila.

The Daily Express says Wenger wants to reinvest money gained from the sale of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri by launching a bid for Rennes midfielder M'Vila.

Although M'Vila, 21, is not seen as a direct replacement for Fabregas, Arsene Wenger believes he would bring a greater physical presence and give Jack Wilshere more freedom.

Arsenal hope a £15m offer may persuade Rennes to part with M'Vila, who has 10 caps for France.
