Liverpool reignite interest in Kylian Mbappe

Liverpool have been linked with Paris Saint Germain striker Kylian Mbappe for some time now, and now a new update has emerged in the French media that the club could yet again be showing interest in the star.

What’s the latest?

According to French news outlet L’Equipe (via Sport Witness), Liverpool have ‘entered the dance’ to sign Mbappe this summer.

The report suggests that with Sadio Mane, Bobby Firmino and Mohamed Salah all out of contract in June 2023, Liverpool are looking at their options to find sufficient replacements if they do not sign new contracts ahead of their contracted exit.

The Frenchman is valued at a mighty £144m by Transfermarkt but is out of contract this summer, and the report states that Liverpool is the third club to have potential interest in signing the forward.

He’s better than Haaland

Premier League title-chasing rivals Manchester City have confirmed the signing of Erling Haaland this week and there would be no better response by the powers at Anfield if they could acquire the services of one of the only young forwards that can compete with the Borussia Dortmund striker’s goal contributions.

In 44 appearances this season Mbappe who was hailed the “golden boy” by teammate Neymar, has put up astonishing numbers for his Ligue 1  club with 35 goals scored and an impressive 24 assists in all competitions.

The talented PSG star has guided his team to another league title and by scoring six important Champions League goals saw his team compete with Real Madrid but unfortunately his game-winning goal in Paris and a second strike at the Bernabeu were not enough to secure progression against the now finalists.

When you compare these achievements to Haaland this season, the Bundesliga forward has scored almost as many goals as games played with 28 goals in 29 appearances and eight assists, and although playing fewer games than Mbappe he almost caught him up for goal contributions per minute with a goal or assist every 63.8 minutes. However, his position competitor just clinches it by scoring or assisting every 63.2 minutes.

There is a lot of debate on who is better out of the pair, and if Liverpool were able to bring Mbappe to the Premier League next season it would not only be a huge coup for Jurgen Klopp but would be a real test for the pair to go head-to-head in the title race and domestic competitions.

Should Liverpool sign Kylian Mbappe?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With that being said, the Merseyside club are extremely unlikely to match the wage demands that other clubs interested are likely to offer with a strict and uncompromising wage structure built by FSG that has reportedly seen players like Salah stuck in a stalemate during contract negotiations currently.
