Audacious!! Arsenal Set To Table £125 Million Bid For Monaco Hit Man Mbappe (Read) - 4 years ago
Arsenal are reportedly preparing a world-record £125m raid on AS Monaco for France international starlet Kylian Mbappe. If the deal is successful, it would surpass the current world-record transfer fee of £89m following Paul Pogba’s return to Manchester United last year. Mirror reported late Sunday that Arsenal boss Wenger will use his French connections to persuade the 18-year-old to choose the Emirates over Real Madrid and Manchester City. The media outfit said Wenger has spoken to Mbappe’s father Wilfried who has been a huge influence in his son’s career. The 18-year-old, who has four international caps for his country, scored 27 goals and provided 17 assists in 59 appearances in all competitions for the Ligue 1 champions last season. Mbappe is the hottest prospect in European football after a remarkable campaign under Leonardo Jardim.
