With the summer transfer window fast approaching, one of the biggest stories during the off season is likely to be the future of Monaco's teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe. 

The 18-year-old has had a whirlwind season, breaking into the Monaco first-team, scoring 19 goals in the process and then winning his first international cap during France's recent 3-1 win over Luxembourg.

 

It seems that the striker can do no wrong and inevitably his red-hot form and promise has seen him linked to just about every club on the planet.

Among the chasing pack are thought to be a number of Premier League sides including Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and their local rivals City. 

It remains to be seen exactly what Mbappe will do at the end of the season, but should the English club's make their interest official, then the Gunners may well find themselves at the front of the queue after a photo emerged on Twitter of a very young looking Mbappe has wearing one of the north London club's old shirts. 

The yellow strip worn during the 'invincible' season of 2003/2004 can be seen on Mbappe, who now seems like an old man compared to what he looks like in the picture. 

Of course, the forward has been likened to Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, so the player's love of his compatriot could well be the more likely reason for him wearing the shirt. 

Still, things are pretty bleak at the Emirates right now, so even something like this counts as a win for the Gunners, albeit a rather trivial victory.
