Monaco striker Kylian Mbappé showed everybody why he’s one of the world’s most exciting youngsters tonight by scoring against Man City – and now Arsenal supporters reckon he’ll be signing for the Gunners.
The 18-year-old prodigy opened the scoring against Pep Guardiola’s side in the Champions League last-16 second leg this evening, taking his tally for his debut season in professional football to an impressive 15 in all competitions.
His pace, power and reading of the game was seriously impressive, not only tonight, but over the entire tie, and it’s led to rumours that some of the continent’s richest clubs will make a summer move for him.
Back in the 90s, Mbappé would’ve been a no-brainer signing for Arsene Wenger, and it appears some fans are still living in the past:

Personally, we’d be stunned if he ends up at the Emirates in the summer – but what do you think?
Could Wenger be about to push the boat out once again?
