The 18-year-old striker is one of the hottest properties in the market at the moment after a brilliant season at Monaco and has been linked with a move away from the Ligue 1 champions.

Arsenal have been handed a major blow in their pursuit of Kylian Mbappe, with the striker said to have informed AS Monaco of his desire to join Real Madrid.

The Sun believes so with the paper reporting that such is Arsene Wenger's desperation to sign the 18-year-old wonderkid he's "set to offer a second world-record bid of more than £100m and Olivier Giroud".

The biggest idea is to try to bring in wonderkid Kylian Mbappé, a Monaco player who is wanted by almost all of Europe.

Mbappe has been linked with a number of other clubs around Europe, including Arsenal and Liverpool, but the France worldwide has his heart set on a move to the Bernabeu, according to Spanish newspaper Marca.

Oil output to expand faster than demand in 2018: IEA

He could get his wish should CRISTIANO RONALDO leave the club in the wake of the probe into his tax affairs, but it would be bad news for the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool who have been linked with moves to bring Mbappe to England.

"In the semi-final, we played Monaco with Juventus, and we knew he is a player with a great future and that's the most important thing", Trezeguet told reporters. 18 years old so he has a good opportunity at Monaco because it is a lovely city, and a world-class academy.

"But everything goes fast in football".

We'll have to wait for further developments and see how Monaco respond if Arsenal do submit this reported bid but it's going to be fascinating to see where Mbappe ends up if he does leave France.

"I think he still has to prove his qualities with Monaco, even if he will have the last word".
