Yann M'Vila has revealed that he is not willing to discuss his future until after Euro 2012 where he is expected to play a major role for France.
The defensive midfielder is currently facing a battle to be ready for the first game of the Championships against England after suffering an injury last week that threatened to rule him out of the opener.
Arsenal have consistently been linked with a move for the Rennes midfielder and he has previously hinted that he would be interested in working with a French manager.
"If the coach calls you and tells you he wants you, especially a French coach, it changes everything," M'Vila was quoted as saying earlier in the season.
The Gunners have already managed to do one piece of business before the Euro's when they completed a deal for Germany forward Lukas Podolski, but it seems they will have to wait to make contact with M'Vila.
"My present at the moment is France," M'Vila told the Daily Mail. "After the Euros we will see what happens with my future. There are many options open and I still don't know what will happen.
"We will have to talk about everything in a relaxed way but I don't think my signing for another club will depend on what happens in the Euros."
The 21-year-old has consistently been likened to two former French greats in Clause Makele and Patrick Viera, but he is hoping to carve out his own name.
"People have compared me to Makelele and Vieira, and I take that as a big compliment," added M'Vila. "There are big names in the French national team, but I am M'Vila, I have my own style and I hope people will recognise that more from now on."
