Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been spotted in France as the race to sign AS Monaco’s wonder kid Kylian Mbappe intensifies. Wenger was seen with chief executive Ivan Gazidis, who lost the battle to install a director of football to the Frenchman last week.
Arsenal reportedly had an offer of around £100 million for Kylian Mbappe turned down by Monaco last week, but it seems they are not giving up just yet.
Mbappe was one of the most outstanding youngsters in Europe last season after netting 26 goals in just 44 matches as an 18-year-old. His performances helped AS Monaco win the French league as well as reach the Champions League Semi-finals.
The teenager has not made a decision on his future just yet, but his team AS Monaco want him to remain at the club for at least one more season.
Arsene Wenger is desperate to make a huge signing that would signal to the duo of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil that they are ready to challenge for trophies this season.
The Gunners are not the only team who are looking to sign Mbappe, as a matter of fact, they may be the only team who are looking for his signature who are not playing in the UEFA Champions League.
