Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe has taken Ligue 1 by storm this season, attracting interest from a number of Europe's top clubs, including Arsenal and Manchester United.

However, the French forward insists he is remaining 'very calm' about the reported interest as well as dismissing the idea that his performances have been extraordinary.

Mbappe continued his brilliant form with another man-of-the-match display, scoring two goals and winning a penalty in his side's 3-0 victory over Caen on Sunday.

MBAPPE STATS 16/17 

Games: 32

Starts: 19

Goals: 19

Assists: 11

The brace saw the 18-year-old take his tally for the season to 19 in all competitions, with 14 coming in his last 12 outings.  

'I would not say that what I do is extraordinary,' he said. 'I would just say that I am able to do what I know best. I would not say it's extraordinary.

'Extraordinary is a player who can score 60 goals. There are not a lot. Otherwise I think we would overuse the term. I would not say it's amazing but I'm on a good run.'

'Sorry, but I do not look at what the English press say. I remain very calm about the attention I get,' Mbappe said.

'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.'
