Kylian Mbappe rises from Bondy to a €100m Champions League striker

The Gunners have already confirmed a deal to sign Sead Kolasinac when the window reopens on July 1, although the club are thought to have been unsuccessful in an ambitious £87m bid for AS Monaco winger Kylian Mbappe.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has tipped AS Monaco superkid Kylian Mbappe as a future Ballon d'Or victor.

"Where do you think he might finish?"

French teenager Kylian Mbappe will look to commit his future to Monaco by signing a new contract in the coming weeks, according to Le Parisien.

Any deal for the 18-year-old is likely to be extremely expensive, while it remains to be seen whether Arsenal would be prepared to spend the majority of their transfer budget on one player.

He said: "I will make a choice based on my sporting career, and my career is first and foremost, and I am at an age where I need to play, and that will be paramount. Nobody will buy a player for a £100m and say, 'Come on, sit in the stands'".

His 26 goals helped the French outfit claim their first league title in 17 years and reach the last four of the Champions League.

Jose Mourinho is in the market for a top class striker after losing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mbappe is the latest name to be linked with a move to Old Trafford after they missed out on Antoine Griezmann.

'You have Ousmane Dembele, who I believe is an exceptional talent.

Arsenal missed out on signing Mbappe previous year when he was out of contract in a deal that could have potentially cost just £230,000 under FIFA's compensation rules.
