Kylian Mbappe will take time to "sort through" the options he has while on holiday with his family this summer as the highly prized Monaco striker ponders the next step in his flourishing career.

Jurgen Klopp has not been shy about his desire to strengthen Liverpool's attacking line ahead of the upcoming season.

And Mbappe opened up on his future following France's 3-2 victory against England last night, claiming he will sort his plans after going on holiday. "First and foremost, Mbappe has been a phenomenal revelation this season at such a young age".

Jose Mourinho has the striker on a list of targets that includes Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata, Andrea Belotti of Torino and Everton talisman Romelu Lukaku. I feel the same about Lacazette. "I'm under contract, I'm not free".

Can Arsenal pull off a swoop for either of the French stars?

A France worldwide has revealed that Spanish giants Real Madrid have been interested in him since he was 14 years old.

Though if a bid for Mbappe does eventually fall short, attention will very swiftly switch to Lacazette, who is set to be available for a quoted price by Lyon of around £60m.

Wenger has also publicly admitted that he likes Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez, but Lemar more of a priority, after his impressive displays in the Champions League.

Both Arsene Wenger and Ivan Gazidis have already been out in France this summer on business, with speculation hotting up that meetings had taken place with both Mbappe's and Lacazette's representatives.

Of course, most Arsenal fans would be more than happy with a deal for Lacazette, however, he may not exactly be flavour of the month in north London.
