France international Yann M'Vila would be open to a move to the Premier League with Arsenal this summer.

M'Vila is currently on international duty with France at Euro 2012 but is predicted to leave current club Rennes before the start of the next Ligue 1 campaign.

The 21-year-old played all 38 league games for Rennes this season and has been a revelation since making his debut for the club in 2009.

He has attracted interest from a host of Premier League clubs including Manchester City and Chelsea, and has been linked with Inter Milan. But he says a transfer to Arsenal would suit him.

"I have heard Arsenal are interested in me," M'Vila told the Daily Star Sunday. "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."
