EPL: Darren Bent names two Arsenal players he would sacrifice for Mbappe


Former Tottenham Hotspur striker, Darren Bent has suggested that Arsenal should consider selling both Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Jesus or Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard to beat Real Madrid to the signing of Kylian Mbappe in the summer.

Mbappe put Europe’s top clubs on high alert when it was confirmed he would not extend his contract with PSG at the end of the season

Real Madrid seems to be the likely destination for the France captain but reports have suggested that Arsenal is an attractive proposition for Mbappe who could be tempted to follow in the footsteps of one of his hero, Thierry Henry.

Meeting Mbappe’s wage demands would obviously require Arsenal to sell key players.

However, Bent feels the Gunners should consider sacrificing the aforementioned names to raise the necessary funds.

“I am not giving up on Saka and Odegaard. I’d give up Gabriel Jesus and Martin Odegaard, or Gabriel Jesus and Saka,” Bent said on talkSPORT.

“That pains me because Saka, an academy graduate, but you are talking about arguably the best player on the planet and he is not old, he is young.

“You’d have a centre-forward [Mbappe] who was going to smash goals in and he can play on that right-hand side as well.”
