Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger should be hoping that the Arsenal transfer target Kylian Mbappe is very close to his family and that his family know the Monaco and France international star very well, or at least that the relative talked about in the French football press does.
The Mirror has reported the latest from France on this massive transfer story and if correct it has handed the Gunners a major boost to our hopes of beating the likes of Real Madrid to secure the signing of this highly rated young forward.
The reports from France claim that a close relative of Mbappe’s has declared that he bellieves the 18-year old will not see Arsenal being in the Europa League as a big problem or any kind of deal breaker, because the reputation of our manager for bringing on some of the top young French forwards in recent years makes Arsene Wenger and Arsenal an extremely enticing option.
The unnamed 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.”
So, Gooners, do we believe that the source of this news really is a close family member of Mbappe’s? Even if they are do we believe that arguably the most sought after striker of the summer would pick Arsenal over Madrid? If that is the case then maybe we were a bit hasty with the anti-Wenger stuff eh?
