Wenger: Mbappe may be out of reach

Arsene wenger arsenal coach

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted he is interested in highly-rated Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe, but says the Gunners might not be able to afford him.

“Of course [we’re targeting Mbappe],” Wenger told SFR Sport. “It would be hypocritical and a lie to say we’re not following him. “But he’s perhaps already in the category of clubs who perhaps have more financial potential than us.”

Mbappe, who has 21 goals in 25 appearances this season, has been compared to Thierry Henry – and the Sky Sports pundit revealed his advice for Mbappe in March.
