Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe has had his say on reports of interest from Premier League club, with Arsenal well-known admirers of the 18-year-old.
Arsene Wenger has made no attempt to hide his admiration for Mbappe and has already admitted he tried to sign him last summer.
The teenager has continued to impress this season scoring twice on Sunday to take his tally to the season to 19 in all competitions.
His performances have also reportedly attracted interest from Manchester United but Mbappe says he is not interested in transfer speculation at the moment.
“I do not look at what the English press say. I remain very calm around this attention I get,” Mbappe said via the Daily Mail.
“I get up in the morning and I go to practice [train] like everyone else. I try to work to improve myself every day and I try to do on the pitch what I do in training.

“For now, it works well.”
Mbappe is on a great run of form that has seen him score 14 goals in his last 12 games but he has played down his exploits.
“I would not say that what I do is extraordinary. I would just say that I am able to do what I know best. I would not say it’s extraordinary,” he added.
“Extraordinary is a player who can score 60 goals. There are not a lot. Otherwise I think we would overuse the term.
“I would not say it’s amazing but I’m on a good run.”
Mbappe is currently one of the hottest young properties in European football and is expected to be in huge demand this summer with Arsenal just one of several clubs reportedly tracking his progress.
