Wenger has been following Lafont for several years - even before the youngster established himself as TFC's No1.
For Lafont, the feeling is mutual, and he told RMC: "Since I was little, I really like Arsenal. Since the days of (Robin) van Persie, in fact.
"If I'm doing well and I deserve to make a step, it will come alone. I do not worry too much about that. I let my entourage take care of it, I focus on the field. If I deserve to go to a big club, I'll go.
"My future, I do not know yet. We'll see. But the important thing for me is consistency. After, we will see."
