Tottenham have joined Arsenal in the race to sign Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe, according to reports.
Mbappe is currently having a fine season with Monaco, helping his team to the top of the Ligue 1 table and is receiving plaudits for his fine form.
Wenger recently confirmed he has been keeping tabs on the winger’s development for quite a long time and also dropped a huge hint that we will continue to monitor his development until Monaco decides his future.
We could now face competition from Premier League rivals Tottenham who are reportedly monitoring the winger also.
According to the Daily Star, Mauricio Pochettino is keen on strengthening his squad next summer and has set his sights on Mbappe.
Spurs interest will definitely force Arsenal to step up its interest in the forward who already has 11 league goals to his name this season.
However, signing the forward won’t be easy for any of the teams as he recently penned a new long-term contract with Monaco and would take a lot of convincing to force them into selling.
Arsenal are keen to bide it’s time but will definitely be among the mix of clubs trying to sign the winger should Monaco change their mind and decide to sell.
Mbappe is a very talented footballer with the potential to become one of the best in the world and will be a massive signing for us.
The only question now is if Wenger will be willing to spend big to sign the forward because obviously, he wouldn’t come cheap if you consider his potential and a number of interests in his signature.
