Arsene Wenger is ready to sign Rennes midfielder Yann M’Vila in January, after hearing of reported interest from rivals Liverpool. Roy Hodgson is ru,moured to have personally scouted the French midfielder last week, prompting Arsenal to ready a bid.

Wenger is keen to bring in a defensive midfielder in January, and M’Vila fits the bill. The Congolese-born France International has a contract with current club Rennes until 2014, meaning that Arsenal will have to part with around £15million in order to land their man.

Liverpool are willing to match any bid Arsenal put forward, but it is thought that the player will prefer the lure of Champions League football, and the opportunity to work with Arsene Wenger.

M’Vila impressed for France against England at Wembley on Wednesday night, further increasing his reputation amongst Premier League bosses.
