Arsenal have turned their target on catching some big fish in the summer transfer window as the Gunners have allegedly offered €100 million for AS Monaco’s 18-year-old striker Kylian Mbappe as indicated by French newspaper L’Equipe.
It is believed that Arsenal have an option as a primary concern, knowing there is likely going to be extreme competition for Mbappe’s signature.
Since Wenger’s future is settled, with an affirmation of a two-year contract extension declared on Wednesday, the Frenchman attention swings to working towards a return to the Europe elite competition ( UCL ) next season. And the North London side are willing to toss €100 million (£87m) at getting Monaco’s starlet Mbappe to the Emirates
Landing such an exceedingly respected big fish in the summer transfer window would go far to helping Wenger win back frustrated fans who spent last season protesting and summoning the Frenchman out of the Gunners managerial affair.
Arsenal eagerness to consider different targets bode well since both Manchester City and Real Madrid were as of late credited with making world-record offers for Mbappe, and Arsenal odds were given a boost when the Monaco starlet said he would not be hesitant to leave the Ligue 1 champions.
Mbappe stated: “Why play less? I’ll have time to ponder that and no, I’m not scared to leave.
“The advice of [Deschamps] counts. That won’t direct my decision, however, it will count.
“I don’t think I will go to his office to inquire. In any case, there’s a lot of time to consider this. There are important matches for Frances.”
Arsenal are by all account not the only side eyeing the 18-year-old forward, with Real Madrid believed to be huge admirers of the forward.
He added fuel to the hypothesis in regards to a move to the Bernabeu by saying how Zinedine Zidane is an icon of his. Mbappe said:”I longed for Zidane the player, not the coach.
Arsene Wenger may feel confidence he can persuade Mbappe to north London. All things considered, Wenger revealed early a month ago how visited Mbappe’s home in 2016 in an attempt to sign the forward, according to an interview with beIN Sports as revealed in the Daily Mirror.
“The player would disclose to you that I was at his home a year ago in an attempt to get him here. Since he was at the end of [his] contract but Monaco managed to keep him and the decision was, tight.”
