According to the Daily Star, Arsenal and Tottenham are both interested in AS Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe.

The 18 year old forward has been a revelation for the Ligue 1 high-flyers scoring 7 league goals so far (according to WhoScored), including a recent hat-trick in a 5-0 hammering of Metz just last Saturday.

Mbappe is so highly-regarded that he’s even been compared to Arsenal and French football legend, Thierry Henry.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger recently raved about him on the Ligue 1 show:

“He is not exactly Thierry Henry but it is true that he has similar qualities and the future and talent is similar,” said the Frenchman, speaking on the Ligue 1 show.

The potential is similar, after that if he has the same level of motivation, desire and intelligence that Thierry has, and the next two to three years will tell us that, then he can be very promising.

The guys that have super talent are already playing at 18. Those who are not playing at 18 or 19 do not have that exceptional talent and he does play over here at the top level.”
