TEENAGE SENSATION: French International Kylian-Mbappe

Hit man Kylian Mbappe is one of the hottest properties in Europe having scored 26 times in 44 appearances in a breakthrough season for Monaco.

France international Mbappe helped the side capture a Ligue 1 title, while also reaching the Champions League semi-finals.

Monaco are in no rush to sell Mbappe, having already received a £43m windfall from selling Bernardo Silva to Manchester City earlier this summer.

The Gunners had made Mbappe their No.1 transfer target this summer and will therefore need to act quickly and make their interest official to stay in the hunt.

A close relative of Mbappe admitted the Monaco starlet could join Arsenal this summer and suggested their lack of Champions League football is not an issue.

Speaking to French publication Le Parisien , the relative said: “Wenger is a great man. If Kylian signs for Arsenal tomorrow, it will be for him.

“He knows how to shape young players and especially the former strikers of the French team, Thierry Henry and Nicolas Anelka.

“The Europa League is not an obstacle in itself.”
