The Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are getting set for a few made weeks of rumours as manager Arsene Wenger looks to press on with his summer business.
Having signed his controversial two-year deal off the back of the FA Cup final win over Premier League champions Chelsea, a lot is expected of Wenger at the bar in the Tavern this summer and there is one name on the lips of every punter.
Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappe has been linked with a move to The Emirates as the Gunners look to overhaul their attacking line ahead of the new season.
The 18-year-old, who fans got a look at when he walked out for France in the 3-2 win over England on Tuesday night, had an outstanding breakthrough season under Leonardo Jardim as the principality side won their first Ligue 1 title in 17 years.
Whilst many would be hesitant to big up the Frenchman, something out landlord is certainly warning against, BeIN Sports commentator Matt Spiro has gone all out and claimed that there is talk of Mbappe already being better than Arsenal legend, and former Monaco man, Thierry Henry.
Spiro even claims one of Henry’s former teammates at the principality club thinks that Mbappe is already further along in his development than the Gunners legend was at 18.
So, Arsenal fans, without getting too excited, do you think the claims are right? Could Mbappe eclipse Henry at the club? Let us know below…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
