Arsenal have emerged as favourites to sign Rennes midfielder Yann M’Vila, according to France Football.
The 21-year-old is seen as one of the most talented midfielders on world football and he is followed by a number of high-profile sides.
The France international is widely tipped to leave Rennes for a bigger club at the end of the season, with coach Frederic Antonetti recently admitting les Bretons would be forced to cash in on their prized asset in the summer.
According to France Football, Arsenal have jumped to front of the queue to sign the highly rated midfielder.
The Gunners already tried to sign the player last summer, and they are now ready to reignite their interest.
Inter Milan, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are also keen, meaning we could see a real bidding war for M’Vila in the summer transfer window.
The Frenchman recently admitted his preference for Arsenal, which could play a key role in deciding his next destination.
