Reports from the Independent reveals Arsenal are closing in on a deal to sign Kylian Mbappe.
The 18-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirate Stadium this summer and he is considering a move to ‘stepping-stone’ club Arsenal because he would love the chance to work with Arsene Wenger, it has been claimed.
The Frenchman guided Monaco in winning the Ligue 1 last season by scoring 26 goals in all competition.
His impressive performance made him one of the most sought after players in Europe which has seen the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal all keen for his signature.
Mbappé is particularly interested in a move to Arsenal because he is a huge fan of how Wenger has developed young French players in the past.
“Wenger, he is a great,” a source told the newspaper. “If Mbappé were to sign for Arsenal tomorrow, it would be for him.
“He knows how to produce youngsters and especially former French international team forwards, Thierry Henry and Nicolas Anelka. Only playing in the Europa League is not an obstacle for him.”
