Arsenal are one of the top clubs interested in Monaco winger Kylian Mbappe, according to reports.

The winger is rated as one of France brightest talents and Wenger is reportedly keeping tabs on his development in view to making a move in the future.

The player is being tipped to follow the path of Thierry Henry and Anthony Martial as Monaco’s next big star and many clubs will try to convince the youngster that their club is the right place for him to continue his development.

Arsenal are one of those clubs interested in the winger with Manchester United and Manchester City also keen on his services.

The two Manchester clubs have sent scouts to watch the player on numerous occasions and have been impressed by his performances.

Tottenham, West Ham, Atletico Madrid and Juventus are also said to be interested in the player.

A well placed French source told HITC Sport: “The amount of English clubs coming to watch him is growing every week and despite only being 17, this could be his only full season at Monaco if his progress continues as it is.”

Reports claim the lad is already worth over £20m now and with the number of interest in him, I wouldn’t be surprise if his value rises further next summer.

Mbappe is currently the youngest player ever to feature for Monaco after making his debut in February, a record which was previously held by Henry and is now being tipped to be a great player like the former Arsenal man.

I’d like the youngster to join us considering his enormous potential but I wouldn’t put my money on it because he could just be tempted to join the club that comes up with the largest offer at the end of the day.
