Tottenham are set to battle north London rivals Arsenal for the signature of Monaco’s hat-trick hero Kylian Mbappe, according to reports from The Mirror.
The fierce rivals will have undoubtedly been impressed with the 18-year-old, who took the headlines in a 5-0 win over Metz recently.
The Gunners desire to bring in a striker over the years has been more than well documented, and it doesn’t look as if £17m summer signing Lucas Perez has satisfied that need.
Meanwhile at White Hart Lane, their addition of Vincent Janssen has not gone down as well as expected meaning another backup for Harry Kane could well be on Mauricio Pochettino’s shopping list this summer.
The forward may be tempted more by a move to The Emirates, considering that manager Arsene Wenger has compared him to former Gunners hitman, and club legend, Thierry Henry.
The France U19 international, who is a graduate of the Monaco academy, has bagged himself 11 goals in all competitions this season.
