Mikel Arteta confirms Arsenal’s interest in Kylian Mbappe as World Cup winner prepares to leave PSG

Kylian Mbappe, forward for Paris Saint-Germain, has announced his intention to leave the club at the end of the season as a free agent. His current contract at the club is set to expire in July, and he has expressed that he does not wish to extend his stay. This news has sparked interest from various clubs, with Real Madrid being a significant contender for his signature.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta confirmed that his team is “in the conversation” for Mbappe, acknowledging the significant interest in the player. However, he also noted that the situation seems to be leaning towards a different outcome, potentially hinting at Real Madrid’s strong position in pursuing Mbappe. Real Madrid has been actively pursuing Mbappe for several seasons, and it seems their efforts might finally pay off this summer as negotiations are reportedly underway for a lucrative deal.

Despite this, Arsenal is hopeful that the prospect of competing for the Premier League title could sway Mbappe’s decision in their favor, especially given his admiration for Thierry Henry, a legendary figure at the club. If Mbappe were to join Arsenal, he could potentially fulfill his desire to follow in the footsteps of his hero, Thierry Henry. However, it remains uncertain whether Arsenal can match the financial offer already on the table from Madrid.

The club has been prudent in retaining transfer funds for the upcoming summer window and is targeting Mbappe as a potential marquee signing to lead their young and exciting team.
