Two clubs' bid of over €100m for Kylian Mbappe rejected

Sportsmail reported that Wenger is hoping to convince Mbappe to move to the Gunners by making assurances that the striker would be a member of the first team.

The 18-year-old has proven to be an absolute sensation for the newly-crowned Ligue 1 champions this season, bagging 26 goals and starring in their Champions League run.

Mbappe has often been compared to former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry, and Wenger said that he has the potential to become one of the best in the world.

Real Madrid will now fully focus on beating a host of Premier League clubs to Monaco's Kylian Mbappe as their major attacking signing this summer, having cooled their interest in Chelsea's Eden Hazard after the Belgian captain was ruled out for three months with an ankle injury.

The Guardian's deputy sport news editor Ed Aarons has taken to Twitter to claim that Wenger met with the Nice midfielder's agent to discuss a possible deal for the 25-year-old.

"From a source close to the player, I can confirm to you that the player wishes ti remain at Monaco". "Nobody will buy a player for a £100m and say, 'Come on, sit in the stands'".
