The Daily Mirror are reporting that Arsenal are set to launch a world-record £125million bid for Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe this summer.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is prepared to pay around £40million for Manchester United forward Anthony Martial, according to the Daily Mail.

Any move for the young Frenchman will depend on whether the Gunners can nab Monaco’s star striker Kylian Mbappe, which seems unlikely as most of Europe’s top teams are interested in signing the wonderkid.

Out of favour at United

Martial has not quite lived up to his potential since arriving at the club from Monaco in the summer of 2015 for a fee that could eventually reach an eye-watering £57.6 million.

Here we are at the beginning of another summer at Arsenal under veteran French boss Arsene Wenger. Last season was a poor one in terms of the Premier League, as the Gunners failed to finish in the top-four for the first time in a decade.

However, the Gunners also won the FA Cup for the third time in just four seasons. The FA Cup triumph has not papered over the cracks at the Emirates.

Arsenal were simply not good enough last season and the majority of the fans know that, even if Wenger likes to bury his head in the sand.

Mbappe admitted Real made an approach when he was 14, but said his future will be decided by his family as well as himself.

“We’re going to go away with the family and we’ll think about what’s going to happen. We have to sort it out, see what happens with the club too, because I’m under contract with a club, I’m not free. We’ll see what’s happening,” he said. Kylian Mbappe is 3/1 to join Arsenal this summer but the financial power of Real might be a deciding factor.
