Yeah, yeah, Arsenal won the F.A Cup... again, which is good for them. But this is still a team that has either Nacho Monreal or Kieran Gibbs at left back (decisions, decisions). This is a team that's paying Theo Walcott and his spray-painted beard £140,000 a week to do whatever it is that Theo Walcott does.

This is a team in trouble, basically. Which is why Arsene Wenger is dusting off the old war chest and, according to The Telegraph, bidding £87 million for Kylian Mbappe, the most-exciting striker in the world right now.

Despite the enormity of their bid, Monaco apparently have no intention to sell a striker who scored 15 league goals last year, having already turned down a reported £105 million offer from Real Madrid; while United, City and Bayern Munich are all watching from the sidelines with bids ready to go.

This is Kylian Mbappe in his bedroom six years ago. Do you feel old?

Wenger had hoped the promise of first team football could be a defining factor in Arsenal's approach, but, as it stands, it looks like they'll be left waiting.

In other news, Mesut Ozil is apparently ready to sign a new £280,000 a week contract, which is quite a lot of money, isn't it?
