Mmmmmh M’Vila

9 05 2012

 According to T’internet and the tabloids Arsenal have agreed a club record fee in excess of £16 million for very highly rated French international Yann M’vila.

 Anyone who has stuck their head out from under a rock in recent seasons will have heard the rumours that we were interested in/were going to sign/were trying to tempt with hookers the 21 year old enforcer who currently plys his trade in ligue 1 with Rennes.

 This time though things seem a bit more promising than the usual scuttlebutt. The normally reliable French football specialist Julien Laurens, has claimed both on Twitter and Le Parisien that M’Vila has agreed a four year deal to bring him to the Emirates.

Normally I try not to get excited about possible signings as year in year out we see ourselves linked with everyone and their dog. But this is one signing that I think would show a real statement of intent from the club.

Not only is M’Vila a very “Wengeresque” signing but he would offer genuine competition for Alex Song and coupled with the early capture of Lukas Podolski would show a real statement of intent which may well help swing the decisions of RVP and Walcott when it comes to signing on the dotted line.

Fingers crossed that some serious lessons have been learnt from last Summer’s business dealings and that this Summer will have less of a resemblance to a re-run of Supermarket Sweep.

I know I am more than a little bit on the tardy side with this but I’ve been busy so shhh…

As one of the people who was less than impressed with the manner in which we carried out our transfer business last Summer – a sort of footballing version of “Supermarket Sweep”. I am very pleased to see that we have secured one of our long term targets not only before the Euros start but before the season even concludes.

That the player in question is one Lukas Podolski makes me even happier 🙂 His time at Bayern aside I have always quite liked “Prinz Poldi”.

I am quietly optimistic that his arrival will produce not just some goals and assists to ease the burden on our own Captain Vantastic but also give some of our wide players a much needed kick up the arse… Gervinho I am looking squarely in your direction….

I will leave you with my main reason for being pleased about this signing…
