Arsenal WILL sign this superstar
Arsenal will sign Kylian Mbappe – that is the belief of Robert Pires.
The ex-Arsenal man said to Bwin: “Mbappe has the potential to play for Arsenal and Wenger is the right manager to manage him.
“Monaco and Arsenal are very similar clubs, so it won’t be much of a transition.
“I do think Arsenal will sign him. The problem is how much.”
Mbappe is looking likely to cost more than the £86m that Manchester United paid for fellow Frenchman Paul Pogba and could even be the first player to break the £100m barrier.
Arsene Wenger confirmed that Arsenal are looking at Monaco’s wonderkid earlier this week, but said that he may already be out of the Gunner’s price range.
Pires also had this to say on the comparisons between Mbappe and Thierry Henry: “The comparison is unnecessary, he’s not ready to be compared to Thierry.
“Mbappe is a very similar player but to compare the two players would be unfair.
“I hope that Kylian can follow in the footsteps of Thierry Henry, he has the same profile as Thierry -quick, strong and a great finisher – but he’s very young so I would hold off on comparisons just yet.”
