As reported by The Times, Liverpool are interested in signing Monaco’s dynamite winger Kylian Mbappe this summer and are prepared to bid the money it would take to bring him to Anfield.
With Real Madrid and Arsenal also sniffing about for his signature according to The Times, it’s a tall order for the Reds to be able to attract to him the club.
Mbappe is one of the hottest properties in world football right now after a sensational season for Monaco. At just 18 years old and with 26 goals in all competitions, including eight in the UEFA Champions League, he’s tipped to become one of the best players on the planet in time.
Liverpool fans appear to recognise this and a quick glance on Twitter tells a story that they’d rather the club focused on more realistic targets this summer. The Reds are a massive club but up against the likes of Real Madrid they have little pull.
This is what supporters had to say about the rumours…
Mbappe is destined for Real Madrid. Perhaps 2 years more before he takes over from Ronaldo. We are just wasting time #lfc

These Mbappe rumours are unnecessary distractions. His age and price tag are insurmountable barriers for #LFC
