Arsenal have reportedly explored a deal for Kylian Mbappe after his potential move to Real Madrid from Paris Saint-Germain hit a new stumbling block.

Mbappe is seeking a new challenge and has long been linked with a switch to the Spanish capital but the player and his entourage are not satisfied with Real’s current offer.

The La Liga giants are continuing to negotiate a contract but have been unable to reach an agreement over his wage package and any deal remains someway off.

PSG still have an offer on the table for Mbappe should he wish to remain in Paris but they expect him to leave and do not want to be held to ransom over wages.

Mbappe, widely considered as one of the best strikers in world football, has produced 241 goals and 105 assists in 288 games for PSG and sees his contract expire this summer.

There is plenty of interest in the 25-year-old France international and according to the Independent, Arsenal and Liverpool have both explored deals for Mbappe.

However, it is thought that neither Premier League side want to break their wage structure to sign the World Cup winner.

Arsenal were one of many clubs linked with signing Mbappe after his breakout season at Monaco in 2016-17 – before he opted to move to PSG.

Former Arsenal scout Gilles Grimandi says that not convincing Mbappe to sign for the club is the ‘biggest disappointment’ of his 15-year Gunners career.

‘We tried, and I really don’t think we were far from getting him, but he declined the project,’ Grimandi said.
