After the sale of Alex Song to Barcelona, Arsenal have been left with a slight gap in the centre of their midfield.

Brendan Rodgers: Salesman extraordinaire

Brendan Rodgers is broadcasting the Nuri Sahin loan transfer as a sales pitch that swayed the Turkish midfielder in Liverpool's direction. Nothing can be more untrue.

Sahin had set his heart on coming to Arsenal and it was the club's insistence on a provision to buy him out that became a deal breaker.

Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho was under the spotlight yesterday and the player himself wasn't exactly ruling out a move to Spurs as a replacement for Luka Modric.

With a new void in his midfield, Arsene Wenger may turn yet again to another rising French star to try and bolster his club.

Arsenal's interest in Stade Rennes midfielder Yann M'Vila has reportedly been rekindled as the close of the summer transfer window nears. If M'Vila were to sign with Arsenal, he would join a group of young Frenchmen to sign with the club over the last few years that includes Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy, Abou Diaby and most recently Olivier Giroud.
