Arsenal in advanced talks over Rennes star M'Villa

Arsenal are reported to be in 'advanced negotiations' with French club Rennes over the singing of Yann M'Vila, according to The Metro.

Arsene Wenger wants to sign the 21-year-old French international as an ideal partner in the centre of midfield for Alex Song.

Wenger has been pushed to begin negotiations after Bayern Munich and Inter Milan showed a keen interest in M'Vila.

The midfielder has been capped 18 times by France and could cost £22 million, with three years remaining on his current contract.

Arsenal became favourites for his signature after the player admitted it would be difficult to turn down a move to the Emirates and his manager Frederic Antonetti believes he is likely to move in the summer.
