Transfer News: Yann M’Vila would rather a move to the Premier League
Rennes general manager Pierre Dreossi has revealed that three clubs are in the race for Yann M’Vila.
Tottenham, Arsenal and Zenit St Petersburg are all interested in the defensive midfielder and the director is adamant that any club will have to pay close to £16million to sign their man.
“For the moment, there are three offers. There is no agreement. We enter negotiations this week and hope to find a solution,” Dreossi said.
“I think that it will be done by the end of this week or the beginning of next.
“It’s a complicated project with clubs who are not even internally agreed [Tottenham], and clubs that Yann does not want to go to [Zenit].
“There is even a percentage chance that Yann could stay at Rennes this year.
“Arsenal? Maybe, you’ll have to call Arsene [Wenger]. But when Song leaves, we must say that “Arsenal will reinforce that post. Same thing for a club that sells to Arsenal.
“We maintain our price tag of around €20m [£15.7m].”
