Monaco have revealed their frustrations over the interest in striker Kylian Mbappe and have revealed they are considering taking action.
The teenager enjoyed a brilliant season last time out, helping the club win the Ligue 1 title and all the way to the semi-finals of the Champions League.
Arsenal are just one of a number of clubs who have been linked with Mbappe, and it seems the French club are not happy at all.
“AS Monaco regretfully notice that important European football clubs made contact with Kylian Mbappe [and his entourage] without its authorization,” the club said in an official statement.
“AS Monaco want to remind to these clubs that such actions are contrary to the article 211 of the Administrative regulation of the French Football League (Ligue de Football Professionnel) and to the article 18.3 of the Regulation of the Status and the Transfer of the Players of FIFA.”
“To put an end to this unacceptable situation, AS Monaco consider asking the French Football League [Ligue de Football Professionnel] and FIFA to commit disciplinary procedures against clubs offenders.”

Arsene Wenger has made no secret of the fact that is he a huge admirer of Mbappe and has even claimed the club were close to signing him last summer.
Speculation had claimed that Arsenal have made huge offers for the striker since the end of the season, but speaking on the club’s pre-season tour, Wenger insisted they were yet to bid.
