Kylian Mbappe's uncle names the Premier League side the striker loves to watch

Kylian Mbappe has caused quite the stir this season. The teenager has burst onto the world football scene like a bat out of hell and as such, has got a number of top European clubs drooling over the possibility of prizing him away from Monaco.

However, at the moment he has no reason to leave. As things stand, Monaco are sitting at the top of Ligue 1 with a three point lead over Paris Saint-Germain with a game in hand as well as having a Champions League semi-final to look forward to against Juventus.

But that hasn't stopped anybody from dreaming of snapping him up in the near future. Reports have suggested that the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal have been tracking his progress over the past few months.

Arsenal are said to have been keeping tabs on him for the past two years, but despite that and the fact that his playing style is linked to Gunners legend Thierry Henry, Arsene Wenger may not be in the best position to land his signature should he ever move on.

And that's because the player's uncle – Pierre, who also acts as one of his advisors – revealed that there is one Premier League club that the 18-year-old loves to watch.

Speaking about Mbappe's involvement in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final this week, Pierre revealed the four clubs that his nephew loved watching, and insisted that he already had his homework done on Juve.

"Kylian does not need to watch Juventus before their Champions League meeting because he already knows Juve very well," he told Tuttosport (via the Mirror).

"He watched their games every week and he's been doing it for very long time. He also watches Real Madrid, Barcelona and Chelsea.

"Anything can happen in the future, but he's very happy at Monaco, we'll talk about it [a possible transfer] at the right time."

Mbappe has netted 22 goals across all competitions so far this season, and while he is in excellent form, it is still likely to be too early to discuss a big money move elsewhere.

But there is something for Chelsea fans to get excited about at least.
