Gunners back in for M'Vila
Rennes are bracing themselves for a renewed bid from Arsenal for Yann M'Vila now that Alex Song has joined Barcelona.
Song completed his £15million move to the Nou Camp on Monday and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger could now use that cash to go back in for French midfielder M'Vila.
Wenger is also keen on Nuri Sahin and Lucas Biglia but there have been suggestions he could go back in for M'Vila despite cooling his interest several weeks ago.
A host of clubs including Tottenham are also said to be keen and Rennes general manager Pierre Dreossi says a resolution will be reached sooner rather than later.
"For the moment, there are three offers. There is no agreement. We enter negotiations this week and hope to find a solution," he told RMC. "I think that it will be done by the end of this week or the beginning of next.
"It's a complicated project with clubs who are not even internally agreed (Tottenham), and clubs that Yann does not want to go to (Zenit). There is even a percentage chance that Yann could stay at Rennes this year.
"Arsenal? Maybe, you'll have to call Arsene (Wenger). But when Song leaves, we must say that Arsenal will reinforce that post. Same thing for a club that sells to Arsenal.
"We maintain our price tag of around €20m (£15.7m)."
