The re-occurring nightmare! by Ash

Today it is being reported that Arsenal and Arsene Wenger are set to rekindle interest in Yann M'Vila. M'Vila was last season's biggest transfer fiasco for Arsenal after Robin Van Persie last season, with the Frenchman tipped to join the Gunners by many top European journalists, only for the defensive midfielder to stay at Rennes before linking up with Russian club Rubin Kazan in the winter transfer window.

Why Arsenal need a new defensive midfielder and why Arteta has been struggling by KJ

It's that time of the year again where we slowly but eventually start postulating on who we need to sign in the summer. Many people will say a striker is most important, others will say a centre back but for me, a defensive midfielder should be at the top of our list.

Most would agree that Arsenal need a proper defensive midfielder. Arsene Wenger allowed the sale of Alex Song to Barcelona in the summer and have not replaced him. We can argue about whether Song was disciplined enough for the role, but Arsenal have not brought anyone in to do the job. Wenger just moved Mikel Arteta further back.

Arsenal lose another transfer target by AH

The January transfer window is always a disappointment for Arsenal fans. We start the month confident that we will strengthen in key areas to help us either build on our strong position, or to help us recover our season.

Many Arsenal fans were dismayed to hear that Arsene Wenger seems happy to allow QPR boss free reign to sign Yann M'vila from Rennes. The French international has long been linked with a move to the Emirates, and is now apparently available at a cut price £8 million. Wenger has obviously cooled his interest in the player, however, and the money is not really a factor.

The Argentinean defensive midfielder has been linked with a move to Arsenal, both in this transfer window and in January, along with some other clubs. The 26-year old has played for Anderlecht since 2006 and he decided to stay at the club to help them try to progress in the champions league, but the campaign went badly and the Belgian club failed to even get into the Europa league.

Arsenal are in danger of watching as all of the potential signings get snapped up by other Premier league clubs. I don't understand what we are waiting for.

Arsene Wenger has been watching Yann M'Vila for a long time, but has never decided to bring him to Arsenal before. Reports from the French midfielder and his club, Rennes, indicate that he will probably be moving in this transfer window, so it is a case of now or never for Wenger to recruit him as a Gunner, but is he worth the risk?

Maybe Arsenal need to employ the man from Del Monte when it comes to transfer dealings, because Arsene Wenger does not seem to want anyone. Demba Ba was too much like Olivier Giroud, apparently, and now he has turned down a cut price deal for the talented French midfield enforcer Yann M'Vila. Wenger is fluent in many languages, but he does not seem to know the words yes please in any of them.

There are reports that the 22-year old French international Yann M'Vila may finally be making the move to the Premier league that has long been expected.

On the same day that Arsenal's main defensive midfielder was confirmed as a Barcelona player, Everton overran Manchester United in a very impressive and fully deserved 1-0 win at Goodison Park.

The link here? United had no midfield. Sky called it a 4-3-3 in the pre-match buildup, but it looked more like a 4-2-3-1 with Rooney, Nani and Kagawa swapping positions behind Welbeck and ahead of Scholes and Cleverley; one is an ageing playmaker, the other a young playmaker who missed the whole of last season through injury.
