The idea is that the Arsenal transfer target Kylian Mbappe will have a big say on his future and more specifically, what happens during this summer transfer window. The 18-year old prodigy has been offered all sorts of advice from a wide number of sources and according to a Metro report he will begin talks with his current club today concerning what he wants to do with his fledgling career.
With Arsenal supposedly one of the main contenders to sign the young striker this summer, Gooners should be crossing our fingers and hoping that these talks between player and club go well for us and it is certainly possible. The other club being mentioned most often with Mbappe’s transfer is the Spanish La Liga and Champions League holders Real Madrid and while this is surely a tempting transfer possibility it may be too soon.
The French forward is a fantastic prospect but still young. At Madrid there may be too much pressure and also strong competition to play and that could play into our hands. The report claims that Arsene Wenger and the board are very serious about Mbappe and have already offered Monaco almost £90 million for him.
The striker said, ‘I’m going to go away with my family and we’ll think about what’s going to happen.
‘We have to sort it out, see what happens with the club too, because I’m under contract with the club. I’m not free. But we will see what happens.’
Could Wenger being French and having a great reputation for developing young players, as well as Arsenal being almost certain to give him regular first team action, convince Mabappe to come to north London?
