Arsenal are set to go head to head with Juventus and PSG for the signature of Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe, according to reports on Calciomercato.it.
The France U19 international, 17, is currently contracted to the Ligue 1 side until the summer of 2019.
Italian news outlet Calcio Mercato claim the Premier League heavyweights have been closely tracking the winger’s progress.
But Arsenal chief Arsene Wenger looks set to battle Juventus and Paris St-Germain for his services.
Any potential suitors will need to splash the cash if they want to sign the 17-year-old.
Mbappe penned a three-year contract with Monaco that will keep him at the club until June 2019 earlier this year.
And Calcio Mercato claim the Ligue 1 giants are keen to keep their prized asset.
Mbappe broke Thierry Henry’s record to become Monaco’s youngest ever goal-scorer when he netted in a 3-1 win over Troyes back in March.
He’s also had a strong start to this campaign and has made 16 appearances for the first-team.
After Mbappe agreed his new deal, Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev said: “We have great belief in him.
“Kylian is a precocious, highly promising player, and we are convinced he will reach his full potential at Monaco.
