Arsenal face Spurs, Man City competition for M'Vila

Arsenal are back in negotiations for Rennes midfielder Yann M'Vila.

Arsenal are back in negotiations for Rennes midfielder Yann M'Vila.

The Daily Mail says Rennes need money and are looking at selling M’Vila for around £17m. He has undoubted ability but it is well known that his lifestyle off the pitch isn’t ideal. That has put Arsene Wenger off in the past and if he resurrects a deal he will seek re-assurances over the player’s behaviour no doubt.

Tottenham scouts have watched Rennes a lot lately and Andre Villas-Boas has admitted a liking for the France international while Manchester City have also considered him as an alternative to their targets Daniele de Rossi and Javi Martinez.
