Arsenal lining up bid for French youngster

Rennes midfielder, Yann M’Vila,  is attracting the interest of Arsenal, who are looking to make a few big money signings after heavy criticism regarding a weak squad.

The France international is understood to have already been the subject of one bid from the North London club, however the offer was rejected.

Rennes value the 21 year-old very highly and don’t want to lose their enforcer after a successful 2010/11 campaign that saw them gain entry to the Europa League.

The Ligue 1 team value M’Vila at around £15m, a sum that could be available after the sales of Cesc Fabregas as well as the supposed departure of Samir Nasri.

The Gunners are also thought to be keen on reviving interest in Everton defender, Phil Jagielka, in a deal that could be worth £14m.
