Mbappe jetted to Lorraine with his team-mates, and it is understood that he will make his first appearance for PSG since joining the French giants on loan ahead of his permanent move next transfer.

Thiago Silva and Lucas Moura have also joined the squad after a lengthy absence, but Javier Pastore and Angel Di Maria has not been included in the 18-man travelling party.

It is expected that Emery will hand Mbappe a start on Friday alongside the other two members of a deadly front-three – Neymar and Edinson Cavani, who have already netted eight goals in between them this season.

PSG will permanently sign Mbappe on a £166million deal next year and the French youngster said during his unveiling: ‘It gives me great pleasure to join one of the biggest clubs in the world, which possesses the ingredients to become the best.’
