AC Milan are the latest club to be linked with a move for Arsenal midfield target Yann M'Vila.

Arsene Wenger is a confirmed admirer of the French international, with reports in the summer that the Gunners made a big-money bid to bring the player to the Emirates.

But, after failing to secure the 21-year-old's services from Rennes, a handful of clubs across Europe are thought to have taken an interest in the player, with Serie 'A' giants AC Milan the latest to be linked.

The news will come as a blow to Arsenal, with talkSPORT reporting that the interest from Italy has increased the player's valuation to around £25 million.

In August, it was claimed by The Daily Telegraph that Arsenal tabled a £15 million offer for the player, which was swiftly rejected.

A £22 million bid days later failed to come to fruition, and following Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri's departures from the club, Arsenal made a poor start to the campaign.

The club have since found their feet with a new-look side, but Wenger is again expected to delve into the market come the New Year, and the Frenchman will have to spend serious money if he wants his compatriot to make the move to Arsenal.
