Premier League giants Arsenal have launched a whooping a £87million bid for Monaco teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe, according to FootTheBall sources.
Sources also reveal that Wenger has been monitoring Mbappe’s incredible form in Ligue 1 this season and now the Frenchman wants to launch a sensational bid to land him at Arsenal.
As we know Wenger, he has never shown interest in spending huge cash on one player, but this time around it seems he has changed his policy after signing a new two-year deal with the Gunners.
And if he ropes in Mbappe for a mammoth £87million transfer fee – it will be more than double of his record signing of Mesut Ozil, worth £42.5million.
Arsenal were handed a boost when Mbappe said that he is “not afraid to leave” Monaco after Manchester City cooled down their interest in him following a reported £113.5million bid to rope in the French teen sensation.
Mbappe said: “Why play less? I’ll have time to reflect on that and no, I’m not afraid to leave.”
However, before deciding upon his future, the Monaco wonder-kid would listen to the advice of Didier Deschamps.
The extremely talented forward is now on international duty ahead of games against Paraguay, Sweden and England and will hold talks with the former World Cup winner.
He accentuated that Deschamps words will influence his decision but reiterated that he is not afraid to part ways with the club that made him a star.
He added: “The advice of [Deschamps] counts. That will not guide my choice, but it will count.”
“I do not think I will go to his office to ask. But there’s plenty of time to think about all this. There are important matches for Frances.”
Foottheball sources reveal that Real Madrid and Manchester United are also keen on securing the signatures of the France striker, who wants regular game-time wherever he goes.
Man Utd have launched a £73.5m bid for Mbappe, according to FoottheBall sources.
But Mbappe dashed Real Madrid’s hopes of possible summer transfer.
He added: “I dreamed of Zidane the player, not the coach.”
“Zidane the player made me dream and still makes me dream when I watch videos of him.”
“The coach is completely different, he is a great coach who has quickly achieved results and continues to develop.”
