Reports in Italy suggest that Arsenal are interested in Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe, but face stiff competition for the player. Calcio Mercato claim that both Bayern Munich and Juventus are keen on signing the 18-year-old who has 12 goals in 25 matches this season (via Calcio Mercato).
Anyone who watched Manchester City’s match with Monaco earlier this week was in for a footballing treat. Incredible attacking football being played by some of the most exciting young players in Europe.
One of the standout performers on the pitch is the man who got Monaco’s second goal on the night, Kylian Mbappe.
The 18-year-old has already been linked with Arsenal in recent weeks and due to the forward’s style of play, there are comparisons being made with Thierry Henry.
Well, now reports in Italy suggest that the Gunners face stiff competition for the forward with both Bayern Munich and Juventus joining the race.
The Italian giants, especially, seem interested in the forward with the article claiming that Juve scouts can be spotted at every game Monaco play.

Kylian Mbappe certainly seems like a promising young player and if he continues developing at his current level then he could become a phenomenon. There are also claims that Real Madrid could be interested in the player so it seems that Arsenal will have to stump up a pretty substantial offer if they are to secure his signature.
