Arsenal fans urge Wenger to sign Monaco 18-year-old
By Dominic Toner
Arsenal fans have rallied on Twitter to demand the signing of young Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe after his performance against Manchester City on Tuesday night.
Pep Guardiola’s side managed a dramatic 5-3 victory in the Champions League last 16 match at the Etihad Stadium.
Monaco will be disappointed to lose the game but are certainly still in the tie, with three away goals to their name for the return leg.
Former Premier League striker Radaeml Falcao scored twice for the host and youngster Mbappe was also on the scoresheet.
The 18-year-old struck in the first-half after breaking beyond the Man City defence and clinically firing into the roof of the net.

Mbappe has been dubbed the new Thierry Henry and certainly showed similarities in the way he played on Tuesday with the Gunners legend.
Arsenal fans have urged Arsene Wenger to sign the young striker in the summer at all costs after his sparkling performance in Europe.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Mbappe is a part of a young and exciting Monaco outfit that are the highest goalscorers in Europe this season.
The French outfit demonstrated their attacking flair against Man City and Mbappe was at the heart of their play.
The France under-19 international managed to bully centre-back pair John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi, despite being only 18 years of age.
He has now managed 12 goals in 26 appearances across all competitions and is one of the most promising youngsters in European football.
