Robert Pires is predicting that Kylian Mbappe will sign with Arsenal.
Pires is a club legend and current assistant.
Mbappe is considered one of the best teenage talents in the world. Mbappe has elicited comparisons to Thierry Henry.
"The comparison is unnecessary, he's not ready to be compared to Thierry," Pires told Bwin. "Mbappe is a very similar player but to compare the two players would be unfair.
"I hope that Kylian can follow in the footsteps of Thierry Henry, he has the same profile as Thierry -- quick, strong and a great finisher -- but he's very young so I would hold off on comparisons just yet."
Mbappe could command a nine-figure transfer fee, which would be difficult for Arsenal to afford.
Pires said: "I do think Arsenal will sign him. The problem is how much. Mbappe has the potential to play for Arsenal and Wenger is the right manager to manage him. Monaco and Arsenal are very similar clubs, so it won't be much of a transition."
