Mikel Arteta has drops huge transfer bombshell when asked about Kylian Mbappe

Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta has dropped a huge transfer bombshell in his press conference ahead of their match against Burnley.

The club are currently on a winning streak after dismantling London rivals West Ham United 6-0 and bettering Liverpool 3-1.

The Gunners travel to Burnley tomorrow as they face the Clarets in a 3pm kick off at Turf Moor hoping they can go top of the Premier League even if it’s only for a few hours.

The Spaniard was asked the the million dollar question about the possibility of signing PSG striker Kylian Mbappe, he simply replied: “The club has to be in the conversation”.

The France forward is expected to leave PSG this summer after not choosing to extend his contract with the Parisians.

Real Madrid are the current favourites to land Mbappe but that doesn’t mean Arsenal can’t launch a bid for the wantaway striker.

Kylian Mbappe has previously stated that he wants to ’emulate’ Thierry Henry’s success and where better to do it than at the Emirates?

Arteta said: “When there is a player of that calibre, we always have to be in the conversation but as you say it looks in a different way.”

Arsenal fans are starting to get very excited on Twitter:

One user said: “OMG its happening, ANNOUNCE Mbappe to Arsenal”

Another said: “Arteta knows what he’s doing, he’s cooking something big”
