On M'Vila, we're not getting him. I still think Kagawa is the likelier of the two because Wenger loves to attack and doesn't care for defenses.
Let's see--our line-up for next season:
Podolski Dempsey Kagawa
That looks so fine, which means it most likely won't happen.

I would take him, but we already have Arteta, and Wilshere will be back unless his mysteriour injury takes him out for another whole season.
I guess Wenger should lodge a 10 million bid for Sahin. If we can get him, why not bid for him? I don't know what plans Jose has for him next season at Madrid, but getting Sahin and Dempsey would be ideal for us, as opposed to Kagawa who will cost more. Plus, Dempsey can play on the right as well. He's not one-dimensional like Arshavin--who is basically a second striker.
Ideally, I'd want Arteta to play the #10 role that he did at Everton. Man, the guy is soooo talented; he can play anywhere.
