One-season wonder. Flash in the pan. A load of hype.
None of these things describe Kylian Mbappe who is, frankly, a freak of nature on the football pitch.
From sending Kieran Trippier back to north London with a drop of the shoulder, to putting Ousmane Dembele in on a plate, everything the Monaco striker did screamed class.
He was, dare we say it, reminiscent of a certain Thierry Henry in the way he ghosted in from the left with sublime ease.
All of which got Arsenal fans very excited.
Arsenal have been strongly linked with a move for Mbappe during the summer transfer window as Arsene Wenger looks to build a Premier League winning side.
The Gunners were even reported to have made a bid for the 18-year-old, which was rejected by Monaco.
There’s a theory that Arsenal would represent a good club for the youngster to develop at, given what Wenger has done with Henry and Nicolas Anelka in the past.
However with Arsenal missing out on Champions League football any deal for Mbappe would be a major coup.
