Wenger speaks about £120m star he submitted transfer bid for
Arsene Wenger has once again expressed his admiration for the player who is regarded as arguably his primary transfer target this summer.
The Gunners boss has already secured the acquisition of Alexandre Lacazette from Olympique Lyonnais, a deal which was announced last week.
However, Wenger is known to have been seriously pursuing the signing of AS Monaco star Kylian Mbappe before the arrival of Lacazette.
The French champions have reportedly turned down an astronomical offer from Arsenal and a number of clubs for the 18-year-old whom they value at around £120 million.
And speaking about Mbappe, Wenger acknowledged the fact that the striker is spoilt with options of who to join at the moment.
“He’s a player who just when he gets up in the morning can choose where he wants to go,” the Arsenal manager said
“There’s not many players who have that kind of luck because he’s 18 years of age and has a red carpet open for him.”
“I believe nobody can say they are not interested in a player of that calibre.”
