Robert Pires: “Kylian Mbappe would suit Arsenal if he joins”

Pires has urged Arsene Wenger to splash the cash by bringing Kylian Mbappe to the club from AS Monaco

Ex-Arsenal midfielder Robert Pires has urged Arsene Wenger to splash the cash by bringing Kylian Mbappe to the club from AS Monaco.

“To buy some players, you need to spend a lot of money – and why not?” he told Sky Sports News.

“The first objective is to lift a trophy at the end of the season. Kylian Mbappe is very good. He is young, he needs to prove, he is only 18, but he is a great player, everybody knows. In France, he played very well for Monaco in Ligue 1 and the Champions League. But, you know, Mbappe is very, very expensive.

“He has a very good profile to play with Arsenal but a lot of clubs want to buy him, especially Real Madrid.”
