In-demand midfielder hints that he will be leaving France as he wishes to "improve his game" but will not reveal where he is going until after facing Dijon this weekend
Reports last week had suggested that the north London club had agreed a fee for the France international.
However, M’Vila has announced he intends to make a decision on where his future lies once the French domestic campaign comes to a conclusion this weekend.
"I'll make my decision after the game against Dijon [on Sunday]," M’Vila told RMC.
Although reluctant to hint at where his future may lie, M’Vila has conceded he is open to a move away from his native France.
He continued: "It is true that I would like to improve my game and for that, I have to look elsewhere. Why not in a foreign country?"
M’Vila has reportedly been a long-term target of Arsene Wenger’s and it is expected that the Gunners boss will have to smash the club’s record transfer fee, currently at £15 million for Russian midfielder Andrey Arshavin, to secure the 21-year-old’s signature.
M’Vila has been an ever-present for fifth-placed Rennes this season, making 36 appearances as well as captaining the side for the first time.
