Arsenal reportedly near a move for Rennes midfielder Yann M'Vila amid interest from Manchester United.

Arsenal are reportedly close to sealing a deal for Rennes midfielder Yann M'Vila.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is thought to have followed the 21-year-old French international for more than a year.

However, Wenger is now expected to push through an £18m move amid interest from Manchester United, according to The Mirror.

Marcel Desailly claimed earlier this month that M'Vila has the potential to be better than Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira.
