Arsenal transfer news: Yann M’Vila would find it hard to turn down a ‘French coach’

Rennes midfielder Yann M’Vila has admitted that he would be keen to work under fellow Frenchman Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

The 21-year-old has been linked with a summer move and those rumours intensified when his boss Frederic Antonetti admitted that the £22million-rated international will be off at the end of the season.

M’Vila has three years left on his current deal, but he himself has started thinking about playing his football elsewhere.

“Inter, Arsenal, Real ... I will take the fun everywhere,” he told Canal+.

“These are great clubs. If the coach calls you and tells you he wants you to make you play, especially a French coach, it changes everything.

“The important thing for me is getting playing time for the France team.”

M’Vila has become a regular with the national side and under Laurent Blanc and has 18 caps since making his debut in 2010.
