Arsenal will go head to head with Chelsea in Cup Final after an amazing 2-1 extra time victory over Man City in Sunday’s semi-final.
It still looks Arsenal are lacking in front of goal so Wenger might have to look into the upcoming summer transfer window to sign a quality attacker to bring in a balance to the squad. Olivier Giroud was a bit toothless, and Danny Welbeck despite his best efforts was less than clinical in front of goal, missing a glorious chance to make it 3-1 at the end of the first half of extra time.
It’s been well publicised that Alexis Sanchez is yet to sign a new deal, and it could be seen as Arsene Wenger is already preparing for life without our talismanic Chilean.
In the light of that, our French manager has been linked with Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe and a report from Mirror claims that we are keen on signing the ace.
The 18-year-old has been in a superb form this season, and in just 36 appearances he has scored 22 goals and created 11 assists.
His dazzling footwork has helped him to secure a position in his senior national side last month and compatriot N’Golo Kante has praised him based on his performance, he said:
“What he does at his age is exceptional…”
The French international’s current contract with Monaco expires in 2019 and he has been valued at around €40million as per CIES Football Observatory. However, the source claims Monaco are hoping to cash in, and are after more than what Man United paid to land Paul Pogba from Juventus last summer.
