New, comments

The Nerazzurri are reportedly looking to part ways with M'Vila in January in order to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations, with Arsenal a possible destination for the French international.

It's no secret that Yann M'Vila has struggled since coming to the San Siro in July on loan from Russian club Rubin Kazan. The French international never really found his place under Mazzarri and has not been readily available for Mancini due to his physical condition.

Now the 24-year-old defensive midfielder is reportedly on his way out of Milan, partly due to his performance and partly due to the amount he costs Inter. M'Vila is set to cost the Italian club somewhere in the range of €7 million over two years if his contract is upheld. That's pretty insane considering M'Vila has only played two games for Inter up until now.

According to reports from The Telegraph, Inter look set to ditch M'Vila in January in order to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations, while Premier League giants Arsenal appear set to make an attempt to snap him up.

It is interesting to note that Arsenal was rumored to be pursuing M'Vila back in 2013. And Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made it clear that he desires a defensive midfielder to strengthen his squad in January; M'Vila would appear to fit that bill if made available at a cut-price.
