Kylian Mbappe could use Arsenal as ‘stepping-stone’ to bigger move – report
Kylian Mbappe is considering using Arsenal as a "stepping-stone" club this summer, say reports
Kylian Mbappe is considering using Arsenal as a “stepping-stone” club this summer, according to reports in France.
French newspaper Le Parisien, as quoted by the Independent, is claiming that Mbappe is currently weighing up his options during the summer transfer window.
The report claims that Mbappe would love to work under Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger but that the 18-year-old striker is currently considering his future.
The same story quotes a source as saying that Mbappe is a keen admirer of Wenger and that he is thinking about his options for next season.
However, the same report also claims that Mbappe’s main aim is to join either Real Madrid or Barcelona before the age of 22.
Mbappe has been linked with Arsenal this summer and the Gunners were reported to have had a big-money bid turned down by Monaco earlier this month.
Arsenal have been linked with a host of players in recent weeks but have so far only completed the signing of left-back Sead Kolasinac from Schalke on a free transfer.
