After being linked with the club for several transfer windows, and touted as on the brink of a move for the past number of weeks, Arsenal target Yann M’Vila made his flirtatious relationship with the Gunners very public.
He said: “I have heard Arsenal are interested in me. I like Arsenal and I like the Premier League.”
That would put a smile on all Gunners faces, if this transfer goes through it would give Arsene Wenger the opportunity to move around some players in the squad, and the first one that comes to mind is Alex Song.
The gladiator from Cameroon has been holding our midfield together superbly in the past few seasons and lately has even showed the vision and passing skills to get himself 13 assists this season, he is a unsung hero and a must-keep for our squad.
But if M’Vila does make the move to the Emirates, it gives Wenger the chance to push Song up and show us his creativity over and over again, he could put M’Vila in the defensive midfielder position and let Song roam around the front and play the great passes to any of our strikers, which they will happily put away.
Even though Song can make mistakes from time to time there’s no denying he was one of the most vital players to our team last season and he’s irreplaceable.
No one can push him out and even with the return of Jack Wilshere, Song has proven himself countless times before that he deserves the spot and the opportunity to play higher up the field and really let him dazzle us.
But could the signing of M’Vila have a bad effect on Song?
Many are saying that Song could leave the club with arrival or the Rennes hardman but that’s simply just a rumour.
But I don’t see the move a problem for Song because this could be the perfect opportunity for him. M’Vila has shown he can make lovely passes but he’s definitely more of a battling midfielder than a playmaker. He will bring the strength that this team needs, and it would all be falling into place for Arsenal as the good times look like they’re just around the corner.
Let’s get ready for our new season.
