The French midfielder has acknowledged that he is aware of reports linking him to the London club and revealed that he is willing to move to the English top flight
The Gunners have been linked with the French international for a while, but it is unknown whether they are prepared to meet Rennes’ 20 million euro asking price for the youngster. However, the 21-year-old midfielder is not playing down a move to the Emirates Stadium, and has revealed his thirst to play Premier League football.
"I have heard Arsenal are interested in me," M'Vila told Sporting Life.
"I like Arsenal and I like the Premier League.
"I don't know what is happening with the clubs, but yes, I would be interested in the Premier League and Arsenal."
The London club is also monitoring M’Vila’s international teammate Olivier Giroud, who has quickly become a fan favorite at Montpellier.
M’Vila has been with Ligue 1 side Rennes since the age of 14, and has earned over a hundred first-team appearances for the club.
