Kylian Mbappe has had a brilliant rise to the top at Monaco and the French youngster has been amongst the goals as well. The forward is being called as the next big thing in France and a couple of his international teammates have words of encouragement and advice for him.
The 18-year-old has been linked to a number of clubs for the upcoming window and his performances seem to raise his stock even higher. With 11 goals in the last nine games, Mbappe is the talk of the town, or principality, and Hugo Lloris believes his International teammate is set for a bright future.
Spurs are one of a number of clubs vying for the youngster and having Lloris at Tottenham does give them a bit of an advantage in signing him.
“He is being talked about everywhere, even in England,” the Tottenham goalkeeper told Goal. “His performances made a lot of noise, but I find him quite detached and serene in relation to all of that.
“He shows great maturity at his young age. It is true that what he does in Monaco is quite impressive. It’s a good sign for the future. If he continues to work and get involved for the team, he has all the qualities to make a great career.”
The forward is also linked with a move to Real Madrid but current Galactico Karim Benzema has asked Mbappe to stay at Monaco for the time being.
Speaking to the RMC, Benzema stated:
“I arrived at Madrid at 21. I had already done a lot of things at Lyon, but when I got here I got a slap in the face.
“My first year was too difficult. You’re far from your family, it’s not the same. Those who are next to you are there to take your place. It’s very difficult. But from what people have said, he’s a very good player, and I hope he’ll have a great career, little by little.
“I think you mustn’t leave too soon,” Benzema added.
Mbappe’s valuation is on the rise and it is expected that any club wanting to sign him will have to stump out at least £51 million. Tottenham do need quality out on the wings and cover for Harry Kane but with Mbappe’s price rising, he might be priced out from Tottenham’s grasp.
