Kylian Mbappe, the striker for Paris Saint-Germain, is open to joining Arsenal in the Premier League.


Meanwhile, Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher remains a target for Tottenham Hotspur.


Manchester United may have to compete with other clubs for Everton's central defender, Jarrad Branthwaite, and Barcelona is eager to retain Manchester City's on-loan defender, Joao Cancelo.


According to The Mirror, Kylian Mbappe might contemplate joining Arsenal as it would allow him to emulate his role model, Thierry Henry.


Henry is considered one of Arsenal's most exceptional players, having become the Gunners' top scorer in two distinct periods at the club.


He is also regarded as a highly respected television pundit. He is held in high esteem in his home country, with only Olivier Giroud scoring more goals for France than him.


It seems highly likely that the striker for Paris Saint-Germain will leave Ligue 1 during the summer, as his contract is set to end at the close of the season. Real Madrid is the top contender to secure his signature.

However, Arsenal won't be writing themselves off in the rush to sign the world-class striker.


Coach Mikel Arteta had earlier stated that it wasn't out of the question in response to the question of signing the French Ballon d'Or favorite.


"If we want to be the best team, we are going to need the best talent and the best players," said the Arsenal manager.


However, Arteta mentioned that he won't be involved in these conversations as the board would be at the helm of it until the last stage.


In 2022, Real Madrid courted Mbappe persistently, but he ultimately rejected their offer to join the Bernabeu team at the last minute.


Despite this, Real Madrid remains a potential destination for Mbappe, although there have been claims in recent weeks indicating that he is also considering other options.



The news of Mbappe being offered to Liverpool broke on Wednesday.


However, the club refused the proposal due to the player's extravagant salary expectations, which would disrupt the current wage system. Similarly, Arsenal also declined the offer for the same reason.


These rumors are only the most recent additions to a long list regarding the future of the French striker. His contract with PSG will end in the summer, and if a new agreement is not reached before then, he will become a free agent.


Although Real Madrid is the team closely linked with him, reaching an agreement has been challenging due to the high demands of the 25-year-old.


Romano has spoken directly about the rumors connecting Mbappe to Arsenal and Liverpool.


Writing in the Daily Briefing, he said he must admit that he hasn't received any new information regarding Mbappe. Hence, there are no updates to share at that point in time.


"The Mbappe story will only be clear when he decides, and he will firstly inform PSG and their president Al Khelaifi. At that point we will be able to understand what’s next for Kylian," he stated.


On Wednesday, PSG played against Real Sociedad in the Champions League, with Mbappe scoring the first goal in a 2-0 triumph. This win places Luis Enrique's team in a favorable position to advance.


Although he had a subdued first half, he promptly responded in the penalty area by converting a Marquinhos flick from a corner with a predatory finish that isn't typically associated with him.
