Arsenal can finally seal Kylian Mbappe transfer today after eight-year scouting mission

Arsenal continue to be linked with a move for Kylian Mbappe as his contract with PSG comes towards an end, amid rumours over a transfer to Real Madrid

Arsenal could bring an end to an eight-year scouting mission as they’re handed the chance to land Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe as soon as today [January 1]. The Frenchman continues to be linked with an exit from his club following on from an ongoing contract debacle.

The forward has made a name for himself as one of the best in the world in recent years, leading to talks over a move elsewhere such as the Premier League or La Liga. That has never quite materialised though, with a new deal very often being struck with the French champions.

That hasn’t been the case so far though as last summer the 25-year-old refused to trigger a one-year contract extension, meaning he had just 12 months remaining on his deal. Panic stations were hit at the Parc des Princes, where drastic measures were taken to try and strike a compromise

Either a new deal was signed or an exit would be negotiated, but neither came as the club isolated Mbappe from the first-team and pre-season training camps. Eventually, once the Ligue 1 season was underway, he was called back and hasn’t seemingly looked like leaving since.
