The 18-year-old has been a revelation for Monaco this term, scoring 26 goals in 44 games for the Ligue 1 giants, and his performances in the Champions League have put a number of top European sides on red alert ahead of the summer transfer window.
Reports suggest the Gunners have already had an £87million bid for Mbappe rejected and are lining up a second offer for the youngster and Wenger has claimed he will be worth every penny.
‘[Didier Deschamps] thinks that he needs to play but I would say as well on the other hand that the boy has made enough impression to be basically sure a club who spends a 100 million for you is basically to make at the start at least the red carpet,’ the Arsenal boss stated.
‘Nobody will buy a player for a £100m and say, “Come on, sit in the stands!”
Wenger was pressed on where he thinks Mbappe will end up and his answer will no doubt excite Gooners.
He said: ‘Somewhere where he has a good chance to play and is sure to play.
‘That is why I think Deschamps made that statement.’
