Various reports this evening say that Arsenal are increasingly confident they can pull off a deal for Kylian Mbappe.
The Monaco striker is hot property this summer with Real Madrid eager to bring him to the Spanish capital (which does not have the sea).
From what we can gather, this began with a story from Jeremy Wilson in the Telegraph which said that the 18 year old saw the Gunners as a ‘viable solution’ as interest in him hots up.
That was then picked up by Football London who ‘understood’ Arsenal were feeling more confident over developments in the last 48 hours – a story which has been republished in the Mirror (who own the aforementioned site).
It will, seemingly, take a world record bid from Arsenal to give us any chance, and if it comes down to a straight fight financially between us and Madrid then we have no chance.
Much will depend on what the player wants to do, and there’s no doubt that Mbappe is a player that Wenger badly wants to bring in.
It still seems a very unlikely occurrence though, so we’re keeping a relatively high poo rating going.
