And eagle-eyed Gooners believe they have solved the question over his future – by looking at his Instagram account.

The 18-year-old was brilliant last season, scoring 26 goals and becoming the hottest property in Europe.

He is expected to fetch what will be a world record fee, with Arsenal looking at splashing out more than £100million for the forward.

Over the weekend, Arsenal fans became giddy after Mbappe was seen “liking” Alexis Sanchez’s pictures on image sharing app Instagram.
