Arsenal whiz vents frustration at failure to sign French ace

Arsenal forward and Russian international, Andrey Arshavin, has revealed his frustration after the North London outfit failed to complete the signing of Rennes midfielder, Yann M’Vila.

The tenacious attacker was counting on the Gunners to sign a tough, holding midfielder and saw the French star as the solution to any future problems such as the 8-2 defeat to Manchester United.

The 30 year-old noted: “Of course the club had been working on transfers but I think the 8-2 speeded up and invigorated their work.”

He added: “Watching the Udinese match I said to (Nicklas) Bendtner that now we have no-one so comfortable with passing the ball to Robin van Persie or who ideally utilises the qualities of the other forwards.”
