Arsène Wenger is making a bid for the Rennes holding midfielder Yann M’Vila. Wenger needs to strengthen his team after loosing his two top players in the last ten days.

M’Vila, who is as a regular in the France team, would cost £12m. The 21-year-old is under contract until 2015 but Rennes have allowed Arsenal to talk to him.

Wenger said that Arsenal had “the money to buy players, we are not short of money”, and he rejected the notion that the more he was urged to spend, the less likely he would be to do so.

“People feel I’m stubborn … I’m not,” Wenger added. “I just want to do the best for the team and to buy the right players. If I have shown one thing in the last 15 years, it’s that I have bought good players here.

“What you forget is we have bought players. We have bought Gervinho, [Alex Oxlade-] Chamberlain, [Carl] Jenkinson, [Ryo] Miyaichi, and you will see during the season they are top-quality players. But at the moment, we have to give them some time.

“Overall, we will buy. We will bring experienced players as well. People just say ‘buy’ but it’s to buy the right player which is difficult.” Wenger said that Arsenal had “the money to buy players, we are not short of money”, and he rejected the notion that the more he was urged to spend, the less likely he would be to do so.
