It seems that Kylian Mbappe is something of an Arsenal follower. The young French sensation worked with the current Arsenal boss Unai Emery when the Spaniard was at the Parc des Princes last season and Mbappe has revealed that when Emery took the Arsenal job he congratulated him and has been following the Gunners from afar.
“I do not forget that he helped me adapt to this big team, which was not easy. I have a lot of respect for this man. I sent him a congratulatory message when he signed for Arsenal & now, I am following from afar.”

The 19-year-old Frenchman has claimed that Emery helped him adapt to being at a big club and that is wasn’t easy to do. The Gunners, though, have read into this a little bit differently and would be keen to see the young French sensation one day reunite with his ex-gaffer at The Emirates. In truth, it’s a move that Arsenal will never be able to finance, but that won’t stop the supporters from dreaming.
Mbappe is one of those talents who comes along once in a lifetime. At the age of 19, he’s already become an established goalscorer in the Champions League, for his country France and in the domestic Ligue 1. The ex-Monaco man is also the first teenager to have scored in a World Cup final since Pele did so back in 2958, and it would be no shock if this wonderkid went on to emulate the famous Brazilian, however. This is exactly why he will never be signing for Arsenal, no matter what the supporters may tell you.

You’re welcome to come work with him again

This is one potential move that the Gunners shouldn’t be getting their hopes up about as they simply have no chance of signing the Frenchman.
