Rennes midfielder Yann M’Vila has said he is in no rush to leave the club after chairman Frederic de Saint-Sernin revealed the player had received a “concrete offer” from England.
Arsenal has repeatedly been linked with a move for the France international for some time, despite manager Arsene Wenger having previously ruled out signing the 22-year-old.
However, M’Vila has now given his thoughts on the saga, saying he is happy to stay at Rennes but refusing to rule out the possibility of a move.
“For the moment, I am here, I am well, I'm not complaining, I play,” he said. “I must play good matches. While I am here, I am [at] the disposal of the coach and I must do the best possible. The transfer window ends on September 4, so I will not lose my head.
“If I must stay another year or more, I will stay. If I must go, that's life. But if I stay here, I will be 100 percent concentrated.”
Arsenal has enjoyed a busy summer in the transfer market already, bringing in Lukas Podolski, Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud, although captain Robin van Persie’s future at the club still remains in some doubt.
