Arsenal target Marvin plays down talk of move

According to the Italian media, Sochaux midfielder Marvin Martin is one of a handful of January targets for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

However, the Gunners may have to wait until at least the summer to land the 23-year-old after he pledged that he will not leave the Ligue 1 outfit mid-way through the season.

Martin said: “I’ve started the season with Sochaux and I’ll finish there as well. I’ve absolutely no desire to leave the side like that in the middle of the season.”

Wenger reportedly tried to sign the French international in the final few days of the transfer window, but Sochaux refused to negotiate.

The French club then offered the midfielder an improved deal, but Martin asked for a release clause to be implemented. The exact details are not known, but it is thought that the player can activate it at the end of the current season.
