According to SPORTbible, the France international has been heavily linked with a move away from the Parc des Princes in the last few seasons.

The youngster was close to joining Real Madrid in 2022 but made a last-minute U-turn to stay at PSG.

While the Spanish giants remain the favourites to sign Mbappe, they will be wary of emerging competition from the Premier League.

Liverpool are thought to be the other team that have become the most credible destination for the 25-year-old.

Could Arsenal sign Mbappe?

However, Arsenal are also said to be a likely candidate, with The Independent claiming that Mbappe would 'willingly join' the north London club.

The publication noted that Arsenal legend Thierry Henry could be the motivating factor behind Mbappe's willingness to join the Gunners.

The development comes just weeks after the former Monaco ace clarified his future with PSG.

Speaking in January, the forward said:

“First of all, I am very, very, very motivated for this year. It is very important," he said.
"As I said, we have titles to chase and we've already won one, so that's already done. After that, no, I haven't made a decision yet," he added.

Mbappe reportedly makes decision on future

Sports Brief also previously reported that Paris Saint-Germain attacker, Mbappe has reportedly made a decision on his club football future.

The France skipper faces the possibility of becoming a free agent at the end of the season unless he reaches a deal with PSG or a new club.

Real Madrid remains the frontrunner to acquire the services of the World Cup winner.
