Bayern pave way for M’Vila Arsenal move

Bayern Munich have cleared the way for Arsenal to sign France international Yann M’Vila, according to his agent.


A report from talkSPORT also claims that the lack of any other interested parties could mean Arsene Wenger gets his man for as little as £12million – a significant reduction in the £17milllion that was suggested earlier this year.


The Gunners had reportedly been vying with the Bundesliga side for the player and were expecting to enter into a bidding war for the highly rated holding midfielder.


Now M’Vila’s agent has relieved any Arsenal worries of the price being driven up when he confirmed Bayern had pulled out of the race.


“We had contact with Bayern Munich over Yann M'Vila,” Werner Baader told the French press.


“He is not the kind of player they are looking for at Bayern. They are looking for someone in this position, but they want somebody with different abilities.”


It seems as though his abilities are just what Wenger wants at Emirates Stadium, as the report claims they have been tracking him for a year.


There were numerous reports last month that M’Vila’s club, Rennes, had agreed the fee of £17million with the Gunners and the deal would be wrapped up once the season had ended.


However, the deal did not materialise and the 21-year-old went to Euro 2012 as part of the French squad having failed to resolve his future.


Rennes earlier this year confirmed M’Vila would be leaving the club after convincing him to stay another year last summer.
