Arsenal transfer update: Sahin and M’Vila still in transit……

Wenger is still after M’Vila and Sahin is not here yet! by KJ

The news last night was that three clubs were interested in Yann M’Vila. Those 3 clubs are Tottenham, Arsenal and Spartak Moscow. This came directly from the Rennes Chairman’s mouth on RMC Sport in France. He confirmed last weekend that M’Vila had played his last game for Rennes so he must be pushing for a move. In his interview, he essentially said that Wenger was in the driving seat for this transfer and acknowledged that Wenger would be after Rennes star man by hinting at the Song transfer saga.

Pierre Dreossi told RMC: “Arsenal? Maybe. You need to ask Arsene Wenger. I think Arsenal will look for a player in this position. He (M’Vila) could go there or to a club which sells Arsenal a player.”

“It is complicated. Yann doesn’t want to go to a team where he is not completely wanted. There is a real chance for him to stay (in Rennes) this season.”

Onto M’Vila himself, apparently, he is still waiting for Arsenal to firm up interest before making his decision. He is solely after Champions League football otherwise he feels that no move from Rennes would be beneficial to his career. I still feel like that this transfer will go down to the deadline day and Rennes will have to bend to the pressure.

The other news that just emerged today is that the Sahin deal has apparently stalled because Wenger has finally got his wish of a buyback clause but is unhappy with the steep fee of £14 million. Considering Madrid only paid £8 million for him, Wenger is trying to negotiate it down to £10-12 million. Everything is done on Sahin’s side of things according to the likes of Balague, Ornstein and other reliable journalists. It’s just the small print with regards on the buyback and you can expect to see this completed by the Stoke game.

Sky Sports last night reported that Real and Arsenal have now agreed terms for the deal to go ahead, and now it is simply up to the player himself to make the final decision. Watch this space…..

Things are really starting to pick up on Arsenal’s side at the moment and we still don’t know who this mysterious defender is that we’re supposedly after.

    Let’s be realistic here fellow gunners! We currently need a strong Ǻπϑ reliable striker aswell! Look at the two manchester clubs they Ђåvε̲̣̣̣̥ 4 reliable strikers each Ǻπϑ we only Ђåvε̲̣̣̣̥ podolski Ǻπϑ girioud which is not guaranteed! What ℓ̊Ƒ an injury occurs on any or even both of them, who will fit in there? Chamack? Park? Or who? Its very important cuz we need trophies dis season. Llorente has a clause around 18m now or demba ba 7m! Let’s go 4 one Ǻπϑ be sure of the frontline!!! COYG

    If we can sign both these players and maby get a RB or LB then we would be set for the season.

    we need a striker. We will only have 2 quality strikers in the form of podolski and giroud. Lewandowski would round up arsenals transfers to be one of the most exciting, hes a top quality player who would fit well into the team. i also think jovetic and mbaye niang could replace rvp in that the pecking order would be bumped up.
    Mvila would be suggested yet biglia is capable.
    an additional defender who is verstile eg sakho or zouma would be brilliant.
    get rid of dead weight and compete with the man u man c and chelsea transfers

    Acquiring Sahin and M’vila would be major, but lets not count Biglia out of the equation completely. Although I’m more inclined to choose the combination of Sahin and M’vila, Biglia (like Cazorla) was floating around last summer on Wenger’s shortlist of coveted players. I think M’vila must be the priority for physical and defensive reasons and the second choice should come down to either Biglia or Sahin, both possessing creative talents in deep midfield.

    If we get 2 out of the 3 I’ll be over the moon, but we MUST recruit M’vila (or another defensive-minded midfielder)regardless by the end of the transfer window.

    Still cut about Song, but we all have to move forward.

    The Sahin deal looks to be another masterstroke by Wenger. Add M’Vila/Biglia and our midfield will be one of the most complete and technically fearsome combinations in the league. In short, we’ll pass our opponents to death!

    I’ve been checking updates every 15mins and I’m almost going crazy. I read dat Sahin has signed, and M’villa is on d way. Good news. We still need a right full back, maybe Van Der Weil, and a top striker, maybe Llorente. If we get hold of these 2, a trophy is almost 100% guaranteed. Up Gunners.

    Why protest about the board.I do not think some people are true Arsenal fans.The board is just refreshing the squad by getting rid of the disillusioned guys.We needed that phase inorder to realise some of our weaknesses.You will see a different Arsenal going on from this season.

    Dream on fellas… Sahin will be the last midfielder mentioned by Wenger himself. M’Vila will probably head to spurs.Wenger is not interested in M’Vila at the moment no bids no negotiation. A defender will come in for sure.

    I think Sahin would be a great addition to an already strong midfield at Arsenal. M’Vila I am not convinced over I think we have better in Diaby, Arteta, Wilshire however he will add a defensive edge to the midfield that is very attacking and young talent is always desirable as they can improve. However I think a defender of class would be a better option if Sahin comes in, and perhaps another all out striker of a peak age.

    When (or if we get Sahin) why do people think we still need M’Vila? There are three or four good DM at Arsenal at the minute, this guy could not get into an average French first 11, he is not worth the money people are talking about. I would rather we signed another established striker, or left-back, central defender or even a backup goal-keeper. With Song gone there is need for a utility defender capable of playing across the back.
