Marvin Martin likely to still be an Emirates Stadium target.
FC Sochaux Montbeliard star Marvin Martin has signed a one year extension to stay at the club.
The France international’s deal now runs until 2015.
However, reports in France suggest a permanent transfer away from the Ligue 1 club is more likely than ever.
Much as Sergio Aguero at Atletico Madrid and Samir Nasri at Marseille signed new contracts in the year prior to being sold, it is believed that Martin’s contract has been amended to include a release clause of around €23m (approximately £19.8m).
Arsene Wenger is a well known admirer of Martin, and may see him as a long term successor for Cesc Fabregas in his team, with Mikel Arteta and the on-loan Yossi Benayoun each around 30 years of age.
