There is a picture of Kylian Mbappe wearing an Arsenal shirt over a decade ago but that is not the only childhood connection he has with the Gunners.

The 18-year-old youngster has become one of the most coveted goal scorers in European football after a breakthrough season at AS Monaco.

Mbappe has been linked with a move to a host of clubs including Real Madrid and Arsenal but the Gunners appear to be one of the frontrunners for his signature.

The French youngster, who met with Arsene Wenger last summer over a possible move, is known to be a secret admirer of Arsenal.

And below is a picture of him with Arsenal legend Thierry Henry as a kid.
