Wenger must break Arsenal transfer record to land M'Vila

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will have to break the club's transfer record to land Rennes midfielder Yann M'Vila.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will have to break the club's transfer record to land Rennes midfielder Yann M'Vila.

The Telegraph says Rennes want at least £17 million for a player who has already being hailed in France, where he is an established international, as the next Claude Makelele.

Arsenal’s club record signing is still Andrei Arshavin at £15 million but, with Wenger having made holding midfield one of his transfer priorities this summer, it is thought that he would be prepared to surpass that for M’Vila.
