Arsenal, PLEASE sign this humble future star

Arsenal target Kylina Mbappe has become one of the hottest properties in world football this season and his most recent comments assure me that he will be at the top of the game for years to come.

The 18 year-old has fired 19 goals in all competitions so far this season, including a whopping 11 in his last nine outings for Monaco, helping his side to top the French Ligue 1 table ahead of Paris Saint-Germain, as well as scoring in both legs against Manchester City to see his team through to the last eight of the Champions League.

Despite his rise to prominence, Mbappe remains with his feet tightly on the ground whilst admitting he is in a rich vein of form.

“I would not say that what I do is extraordinary,” Mbappe said. “I would just say that I am able to do what I know best. I would not say it’s extraordinary.

“Extraordinary is a player who can score 60 goals. There are not a lot. Otherwise I think we would overuse the term. I would not say it’s amazing but I’m on a good run.”

This sort of attitude is refreshing to see in the current climate, where the likes of Pogba are dancing around and appearing in music videos, this youngster is solely interested in playing football and bettering himself.

Mbappe also insists that he is not interested in the speculation surrounding his signature and reiterates his desire to work hard and continuing as he has been doing this term.

He added: “Sorry, but I do not look at what the English press say. I remain very calm about the attention I get.

“I get up in the morning and I go to practice like everyone else. I try to work to improve myself every day and I try to do on the pitch what I do during the training sessions.”

There is nothing I do not like about this guy’s attitude and playing style, and the links with Thierry Henry cannot be ignored either.

If Arsenal are willing to finally heed the warning that this season has given us, and are willing to open their cash wallet, do it for this guy!

Is there any other realistic targets worthy of replacing Alexis Sanchez in our squad?

  1. When i hear or read anything Arsenal related i’m just numb. No player in their right mind would want to come play for Arsenal right now. Monaco are way better than us and dominating the Ligue 1 plus in the semi finals of the CL. Why would Mbappe come to us?

    All we will get this summer will be rejects from top teams at best and the thought Wenger signing another contract boils my blood. He is trying really hard to leave this club with a tarnished legacy.

  2. Now this guy Mbappe has suddenly hit a rich vein of form he’ll have all the big clubs ( PSG, RM, Barca ) after him so why would he join the slog that is the Premier League. There are all more attractive options than playing in England. It makes me laugh when I read that we should sign Griezman, Aubameyang etc, this isn’t Championship Soccer on the computer, atm it’s going to take a lot of persuading ( and money ) to convince any WC player to join us.

  3. His quoted at 90 million €uros ( including add -ons) which isn’t that high for a player who has the potential to be as good as Henry was and he doesn’t turn 19 until December. His wages will be in lower bracket, which would compensate his high price tag,in the long run.

    It’s more than likely that Sanchez and Ozil will be sold during the summer and it’s highly unlikely that Wenger would splash that cash on Mbappe? ? ?and even if by some miracle he did, it still wouldn’t be enough, would it??

  4. I believe that Arsenal has been riding on a long slippery slope and it just became much steeper.
    And knowing Arsene(al), whatever top player/top player in the making gets the spotlight, he won’t end up in Arsenal. Especially since we won’t climb higher than sixth this season.
    Then, there are Sanchez and Ozil buggering off to the pastures new. Will we replace them accordingly? Of course not. Then, there are other EPL clubs that will surely boost their squads where they need to. I can’t see Arsenal getting anywhere further than 6th place next season, unless Arsene buggers off as well. And even then, it will be as tough as it gets. Because even the new manager won’t be able to attract a top player to a club that doesn’t consider trophies an achievement.
