Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is believed to be an admirer of the 21-year-old France international, and with the player's confirmation he would be open to a move Wenger may have the signal he needs to begin preparing a summer bid.

Asked about his future, M'Vila told Canal+ he would be particularly interested in linking up with a fellow Frenchman, and said: "Inter, Arsenal, Real... I will take the fun everywhere!"

"These are great clubs. If the coach calls you and tells you he wants you to make you play, especially a French coach, it changes everything.

"The important thing for me is getting playing time for the France team."

There had been suggestions that Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho had already contacted M'Vila to find out about his potential interest in a move to the Bernabeu, but the player was quick to call the speculation into check.

"Mourinho calling me? He does not even have my number," quipped M'Vila.

"But play at Real? Yeah, it would be an absolute blast! It would be great to play with Kaka and [Karim] Benzema."
