Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe is the “leader of this generation” but must choose his next move carefully, says Arsenal legend Emmanuel Petit.
The Gunners are among those reported to be pursuing the teenage frontman ahead of the summer transfer window.
He told talkSPORT: “Mbappe is the leader of this generation.
“I would love it [for him to join Arsenal]. I remember two years ago we had almost the same example as Martial.
“Martial was very good the first months with Manchester United and since Mourinho has managed the team he’s not in the same position anymore. It’s a risk.
“Talent is something very important in football but you need to have confidence as well from team-mates and your manager. “
