Mbappe ignoring English interest

Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe says he is not reading anything into reports of English interest following another impressive performance.

Mbappe produced another man-of-the-match display in Sunday's 3-0 victory over Caen and ended the game with two goals, taking his season tally to 19 across all competitions.

The France Under-19 international was also fouled for a penalty, which Fabinho tucked away, and the result keeps the club top of Ligue 1 by three points from Paris Saint-Germain in second.

Numerous reports have claimed a number of top Premier League clubs are interested in the 18-year-old, with Manchester United and Arsenal heavily linked.

Monaco are bracing themselves for several summer bids but Mbappe insists his only focus is on helping the club maintain their challenge for both domestic and European glory.

"Sorry, but I do not look at what the English press say. I remain very calm about the attention I get," he told dailymail.co.uk. "I get up in the morning and I go to practice like everyone else. I try to work to improve myself every day and I try to do on the pitch what I do during the training sessions."
