Mbappe will sign for Arsenal, says Former Gunner

Former Gunner Robert Pires reckons that Kylian Mbappe would find the prospect of signing for Arsenal attractive.

The 18-year-old Monaco striker is currently one of Europe’s most wanted men after scoring 18 goals for the French outfit this season.

Mbappe has not hidden his adoration for Real Madrid, who are also rumoured to be in for the race to sign him, but Pires thinks that Monaco’s similarity in style of play to Arsenal's would give Mbappe’s quite the conundrum when choosing next club.

“I do think Arsenal will sign him.” he told Bwin. “The problem is how much. Mbappe has the potential to play for Arsenal and Wenger is the right manager for him.

“Monaco and Arsenal are very similar clubs, so it won’t be much of a transition.”

Mbappe's style of play has been reminiscent of Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, and although similarities to a young Henry are easy to spot, Pires also thinks that they are unjustified at this moment of time.

“The comparisons are unnecessary, he’s not ready to be compared to Thierry. Mbappe is very similar player but to compare the two players would be unfair.

“I hope that Kylian can follow 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 comparisons just yet.”
