Arsenal will reportedly have to quell the advances of Inter Milan if they hope to complete the signings of Yann M'Vila and Younes Belhanda this summer.

Rennes midfielder M'Vila is seemingly playing his last season for his current employers, and will surely be rewarded with a high-profile move during the transfer window.

Belhanda, meanwhile, has been one of the stars of a Montpellier side continuing to defy expectation, as MHSC head towards a first ever Ligue 1 title.

Both have been frequently linked with Arsenal - M'Vila in particular - and, according to talkSPORT, Arsene Wenger has identified the midfield duo as potential summer acquisitions.

However, Corriere dello Sport claims the Gunners will have to contest Inter should they decide to formalise their interest in either M'Vila or Belhanda.

M'Vila, 21, is set to play a prominent role for France at this summer's European Championships, and a successful tournament will only see any potential transfer fee increase.

Belhanda, meanwhile, has reportedly been valued at around £20 million, and could prove to be a marginally cheaper option for Arsenal.
