Arsenal are weighing up a move for Kylian Mbappe in 2024.

We have been told that the Paris Saint-Germain attacker is admired by the Premier League club, who are considering whether or not to send a package to the Frenchman’s representatives.

Mbappe’s contract is up at the Parc des Princes next year, meaning that PSG must sell him this window or risk losing their prized asset on a free transfer in 2024.

At this point in time, it is thought that Mbappe will be heading to Real Madrid. PSG are holding firm in their asking price for the player, but if that gets lowered, Los Blancos could make an offer now to trigger the biggest transfer of this summer.

But if this doesn't happen, it would open the door for other clubs. If a deal between Mbappe and Arsenal is struck, it would mark a sensational move for Mikel Arteta's men.

But the side know that they would be second-choice to Madrid and would have to hope that the LaLiga outfit somehow fail in their pursuit of the 24-year-old.

Tchouameni liked

It comes after Jacque Talbot's story that Arsenal have added Aurelien Tchouameni to their list of transfer targets.

We have been told that if they don't manage to sign either Brighton's Moises Caicedo or sought-after Southampton youngster Romeo Lavia, they will test the waters for the Real Madrid midfielder.

Arsenal are long-time admirers of the France international and have now set their sights on bringing him to the Emirates if they are unable to secure the services of the other two midfield targets.

Tchouameni had an inconsistent campaign at Real Madrid last term, but we have been told that Florentino Perez sees the midfielder as the centre-piece for next season.

He has told Carlo Ancelotti to provide Tchouameni with more minutes next campaign as part of a double-pivot. Perez sees him as the next Casemiro and will certainly not accept anything less than the €100 million that Real paid AS Monaco last summer.
