EPL: Arsenal should be targeting players like Mbappé – Arteta

Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, has said the Premier League club should be targeting the best players in the world including Kylian Mbappé.

This week, Mbappé informed Paris Saint-Germain that he will be leaving in the summer when his current contract expires.

The player is widely expected to join Real Madrid ahead of next season.

However, Arteta was asked on Friday whether he had any interest in Mbappé, and he said: “When there is a player of that calibre we always have to be in the conversation. But as you said it looks in a different way [that Mbappé is joining Madrid].”

Pushed to elaborate on whether Arsenal were “in the conversation” to sign Mbappé, Arteta replied: “I am not! Maybe Edu [the technical director] and the owners are, but I am not in those conversations until the last stage.

“Why not? If we want to be the best team, we are going to need the best talent and the best players, that is for sure.”
