Reports from the Independent claims Kylian Mbappe is considering a move to Arsenal as he is a big admirer of Arsene Wenger and he isn’t worried about playing in the Europa League.
Mbappe has become the most in-demand striker in European football after enjoying a sensational campaign that saw him score 26 goals and provide 14 assists to guide Monaco to the Ligue 1 title ahead of Paris Saint-Germain.
Reports from the British Media suggested Arsene Wenger has already seen an £87million bid rejected by Monaco and now The Sun reporting earlier this week that Wenger is ready to pay £100m plus throw in Olivier Giroud in exchange for the teen sensation.
An apparent source told the paper:
“Wenger, he is a great. 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.”
“Kylian is currently thinking things over. Either he will go to a stepping-stone club, or directly to a great club.
“But his aim is very clear: to sign for one of the two biggest clubs in the world, they are Real Madrid or Barcelona for him, before reaching the age of 22.”
The source also added Mbappe revealed he see Arsenal as stepping stone before he makes his big move to Barcelona or Real Madrid.
