Arsene Wenger is a fan of the youngster and recently compared the forward with Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.
The report in Independent claims that Premier League duo of Arsenal and Man City tried to sign the forward in the summer. However, their failure to snap up the youngster will cost them dearly as other European heavyweights are also expected to rival them for Mbappe when the transfer window re-opens.
It is really tough to spend such huge money on an 18-year-old who just had one good season in France, but you know how the transfer markets work these days. It remains to be seen how this Mbappe story pans out, however from an Arsenal perspective, we are basically out of the picture.
But he definitely joins the ever growing list of players, we almost signed!
