Undoubted, Arsenal are one of the best breeding ground for talented youngsters, as they are properly nurtured and given the opportunity to express themselves.
Our scouts have also proved over the years that they have eyes for talent and this has led them to identifying Monaco’s 17-year-old left winger, Kylian Mbappe, this is according to reports.
The 17-year-old youngster has established himself in the first team of the Ligue 1 side – he made 11 appearances in Ligue 1 last season where he scored one goal and provided an assist, and a total of 14 appearances in all competitions. He’s also featured twice for the club this term.
According to French publication L”Equipe, Arsenal are not the only club in the chase of the player. Manchester City have already seen £34.5m bid for the player rebuffed. However, it is difficult to see Arsenal paying overboard for such a teenager.
The youngster ascended through the youth rank at Monaco, signing for the club in 2013 from AS Bondy when he was just 14.
Already compared to Thierry Henry upon arriving at Monaco, I doubt he’s a player we will ever see at Arsenal, no matter how many times we are linked.
