Arsene Wenger believes that Kylian Mbappe will have the final say about his future as Arsenal continue to be linked with the 18-year-old starlet.

The French teenager has been linked with the likes of Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid this summer after enjoying an impressive breakthrough season at Monaco last term.

Arsenal are said to be among the teams interested in signing Mbappe this summer but it remains to be seen where the striker’s future lies.

However, Wenger has admitted that he is a keen admirer of the youngster when asked for his opinion on the teenager.

Speaking at a news conference in Sydney on Tuesday, Wenger said: “He’s a player who, when he gets up in the morning, can choose where he wants to go.

“There are not many players with that kind of luck, because he’s only 18 years of age and has the whole of Europe rolling out a red carpet for him.

“Nobody can say they are not interested in a player of that calibre, because he has such immense quality at 18 years of age. All the clubs are open and interested in him.”

Arsenal confirmed their second signing of the summer on Wednesday last week after the Gunners announced a deal to bring in striker Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.

The north London side have also tied up a deal to land left-back Sead Kolasinac from Schalke this summer as they prepare for the new campaign.
