BIG DEAL

Monaco try to price Kylian Mbappe out of transfer market with £100m price tag and are trying to get him to sign new deal

The 18-year-old has attracted attention from Europe's big guns after a string of incredible performances for Monaco

He is one of the hottest properties in European football, but Monaco are confident Kylian Mbappe is going nowhere.

In a bid to ward off a growing list of potential suitors, the French outfit have slapped a £100million on the 18-year-old.

The player seemingly is getting better and better with each game, even that might not be enough to put off the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester United and even Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger is a huge fan on the striker and failed in a attempt to sign him when he was 16.

The Gunners boss even visited Mbappe at his home last season to try and convince him to join him in North London.

But with Europe’s elite now circling and the Gunners looking likely to miss out on Champions League football next season, their chance of signing Mbappe look slim.

The Gunners are willing to fork out the huge sum to land him but Real, Manchester United, City and Juventus are all chasing.

One of the ways they are trying to convince Mbappe to come to the Emirates in the promise have playing regularly and as a centre forward.

There is a danger that Mbappe could be played out of position if he moves to Madrid with Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale all taking up the front three positions.

But Monaco are moving quickly in a bid to get the prodigy to sign a new contract there. His current one has two years to run, but hopes are high that he can be tied down for the long-term.
