Kylian Mbappe has been rumored to leave Paris Saint-German this summer with Liverpool favourites to sign the Frenchman.
The Reds are monitoring the situation of the 22-year-old who is Jurgen Klopp’s ‘dream signing’, but face strong competition with Real Madrid, who are also keen on the striker.
Mbappe’s deal with PSG expires at the end of the 2021/22 season and so far, no agreement has been reached to extend his contract. If a deal is not agreed the French champions will have to decide whether to sell him in the summer or risk losing him on a free transfer.
According to SPORT Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp has been in contact with Kylian Mbappe in the hope of convincing him to a move to Anfield. However, due to the arrival of Mauricio Pochettino, it could complicate things, with the Argentinian’s main priority, to keep him at the club.
Liverpool have lacked goals this season other than the 7-0 win against Crystal Palace, the Reds have only scored once in their last 3 games, with two of those teams being in the bottom half of the table. The front three of Liverpool are one of the 15 players in the Premier League with the most missed chances this season. Mane and Firmino with 7 and Salah with 5.
Portugese winger Diego Jota has had a huge impact since his £45m move in the summer. However, Since his injury Liverpool have lacked consistency in the final third and that’s what Mbappe can give to them, someone who is a proven goal scorer at such a young age.
The Reds offer the perfect package for the Frenchman with the Premier League being the most competitive league, a manager that can get the best out of him, a club with success and a link between the Nike mutual deal, which will help provide the funds required if Liverpool get this deal done.
The Frenchman has been impressed with what the club is building, saying Jurgen Klopp has turned them [players] into the ‘ruthless machine’, as they clinched their first league title since 1990 last season.
What Mbappe offers is strong hold-up play, good control and excellent finishing. He has sharp movement on and off the ball and can be dangerous against opponents. Having played for 4 seasons with the French champions, Mbappe has scored 107 goals in 157 matches, winning three Ligue 1 titles, two Coupe de France and two French league cups.
