I would “love” Kylian Mbappe to join Gunners this summer - Petit


Arsenal legend Emmanuel Petit has admitted he would “love” Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe to join the Gunners this summer, although he warned the 18-year-old of choosing his next club carefully following Anthony Martial’s struggles at Manchester United.

Arsenal have already had an informal offer of £87million rejected by Monaco for Mbappe, but are prepared to use Olivier Giroud as part of any deal with the Ligue 1 champions.

Mbappe, 18, is also being monitored by a host of clubs – including Real Madrid, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea – but Petit has warned the France international to think carefully about where he goes this summer lest his career follow the trajectory of Martial at United.

He told talkSPORT: “Mbappe is the leader of this generation.

“I would love it [for him to join Arsenal]. I remember two years ago we had almost the same example as Martial.

“Martial was very good the first months with Manchester United and since Mourinho has managed the team he’s not in the same position anymore. It’s a risk.

“Talent is something very important in football but you need to have confidence as well from team-mates and your manager.

“You have to be tough and strong in your mind.”
