Tottenham and Arsenal target Yann M'Vila insists he'll remain 100 per cent committed to Rennes, even if the midfielder doesn't get the move he wants in the next few weeks.

The 22-year-old French international revealed over the weekend that he had received a concrete proposal from a Premier League club, but reports suggest that it is in fact Spurs who have edged ahead of their north London rivals in pursuit of his signature.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is a long-term admirer of M'Vila's, and has been heavily linked with a move for the £18million rated man this summer. However, ahead of the anticipated departure of Luka Modric, Andre Villas-Boas has attempted to lure the French enforcer to White Hart Lane.

Speculation about the player's future has dominated headlines for much of the transfer window, but M'Vila is calm about the situation, whichever way it develops.

"For now, I'm here and I'm not complaining," he told Sport24. "I am available to the coach and I give my best as always.

"In France we have until September 4th [when transfer window closes]. If I have to stay with Rennes for another year, I'll stay - if I go, that is life - but whilst I am here, I am 100 per cent focused."

Wenger has been uncharacteristically busy this summer, having strengthened his Arsenal squad with the additions of Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud, and Santi Cazorla.

Meanwhile, Spurs have signed Gylfi Sigurdsson and Jan Vertonghen ahead of the new campaign.
