Liverpool interested in signing Kylian Mbappe

Liverpool are reportedly keen on signing Paris Saint-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe.

According to the reliable French journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi (via GFFN), the Premier League side are ‘very interested’ in signing the World Cup winner.

They will face stiff competition from Spanish giants Real Madrid for a player that has established himself as one of the best players in world football.

He would be a sensational addition to Jurgen Klopp’s attack, although it is debatable whether they could afford to sign him.

The Reds would have to pay a club-record fee to sign Mbappe and would probably have to sell either Sadio Mane or Mohamed Salah to fund the transfer.

Liverpool are yet to confirm their participation in the Champions League next season, and a player of Mbappe’s calibre will want to play at that level regularly.t.

The club have faced massive losses over the past year due to the pandemic, and their transfer business could depend on the sale of fringe players.

Madrid are probably better placed to sign the 22-year-old, with Bouhafsi claiming that they have been saving up funds to sign the Frenchman for several seasons now.

Mbappe has bagged 39 goals and 10 assists in all competitions this season, and he would be a superb signing for any of his suitors.
