That form has not gone unnoticed, with some of Europe's biggest clubs already linked with an interest in his signature. 

And Conte admitted that he is a big admirer of the wonderkid. 

"I don't like to talk about players from other teams, but in this case it's normal to tell he is a very good prospect," the Chelsea manager said in an interview with SFR Sport

"For sure, he is still very young and he has a lot of room to improve. 

"But he has all the characteristics to become a top player."

Mbappe has played 39 games in his first full season for Monaco, scoring an impressive 24 goals in all competitions.
