Capable of playing up front or on the outside, the younger Mbappe impressed at the 2019 International Champions Cup Futures tournament.
He has since been called up to France U16 and continued to impress at youth level.
Speaking to RMC Sport, INF director Clairefontaine Jean-Claude Lafargue said of Ethan: “He is a very elegant midfielder.
“He speaks very fluently, he is very intelligent. He’s a player in the making, that’s for sure.’
His brother Kylian Mbappe also grabbed the headlines when he scored a brace in PSG’s 2-1 win over Juventus in the Champions League group stage.
