M'Vila has been on Arsene Wenger's radar for several seasons during his hunt for someone to add defensive steel to his Gunners midfield.

Brendan Rodgers has also been linked with a move as he looks to add depth to his Liverpool squad ahead of an assault on the Champions League next season.

Italian side Napoli, who unlike Inter will feature in the Champions League next season, are also in the race to sign the 23-year-old.

M'Vila currently plays for Russian side Rubin Kazan after completing a £10m move from Rennes in January 2013.
