Spurs, Arsenal target Kylian Mbappe: I still have long way to go...

AS Monaco superkid Kylian Mbappe refuses to get carried away with the hype buzzing around him.

With Tottenham and Arsenal tracking him closely, Mbappe struck a hat-trick on Saturday in victory over Metz.

Asked about all the rumours, the teen insists he'll stay grounded.

"Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Neymar are phenomenal players. I am still far from the level of those three," said Mbappe. "I scored a hat-trick, thanks to a top performance by the whole team.

"Did I expect this? No. There was nothing special about it. I felt just right."
