Yann M’Vila Premier League bound?
The race is on for Yann M’Vila’s signature as the player has announced he is ready to leave Russian club Rubin Kazan. The imposing defensive midfielder has been linked with a string of clubs all over Europe recently and he is set to be a popular figure in the upcoming January transfer window.
The Frenchman’s agent Werner Baader confirmed recently: ”I think many players dream of playing in the Premier League – Yann is no different, I will not deny there is interest from many European clubs, including English teams.”
M’Vila began his professional career at Rennes in 2009 and he made 126 league appearances for the club scoring 2 goals. He stayed with Rennes until last seasons January transfer window, when once again a lot of clubs were heavily linked with his services including QPR and Fulham in the Premier League. But M’Vila would depart north-western France and head to Russia after Rennes and Rubin Kazan agreed a £9.6m deal for the powerful midfielder.
M’Vila has represented France at every level of international football, right the way through from Under-16′s to Under-21′s and he he now has 22 senior caps and a goal to his name. He is already a talent but he also has a lot of time left in his career to develop his game further and he sees England as the best opportunity to do that.
He was recently spotted with the Liverpool fans at the Merseyside derby against Everton at Goodison Park earlier this season, and he has previously stated that he followed the Reds when growing up. If Liverpool do make a bid for the player, it is thought to be his preferred destination and M’Vila’s best friend Mamadou Sakho, is also at the club.
But there is enormous demand for M’Vila so the Reds will have to move quick in order to secure him. Arsenal, Chelsea, and Tottenham have all been linked with the player and according to Sky Sports Italia, Napoli manager Rafa Benitez has also earmarked the player as a potential signing for the club.
