English giants Liverpool are the frontrunners to sign PSG small-boss striker Kylian Mbappe in this summer’s transfer window, according to The Athletic.
Liverpool will have to pay a record transfer fee to sign Kylian Mbappe as a possible replacement for the departing Sadio Mane.
Liverpool were offered to sign Kylian Mbappe’s contract by PSG, but Mbappe refused if he played in the Premier League.
Although PSG opened the door for Kylian Mbappe to leave the club in the summer window.
However, PSG were unwilling to let him go to Real Madrid, a team Kylian Mbappe eventually turned down after flirting with them for a long time.
It was also added that Kylian Mbappe refused to move to Anfield because he was not willing to move to the Premier League club.
However, Liverpool are not going to sign him on the cheap, with PSG reportedly asking for a hefty fee of €352 million if the Reds really want to sign Kylian Mbappe in the summer.
Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp is unlikely to pay such a large fee, knowing that they will also have to pay Kylian Mbappe a hefty salary.
The French forward is reportedly taking in a reported £1.3 million a week (according to the New York Times) in his latest PSG contract, which not even many other clubs can afford.
Liverpool Waiting for January to Get a Replacement for Sadio Mane
The Reds opted against signing a natural replacement for Mane in the summer transfer window, instead trusting Luis Diaz to fill his role on the left flank and recruiting a new striker in the form of Darwin Nunez.
However, with injuries threatening to disrupt their season, Liverpool were forced into action at the start of the January transfer window.
They quickly sealed the signing of PSV forward Cody Gakpo, who is also a more natural replacement for the Senegalese star.
The Reds are unlikely to go after Kylian Mbappe if terms like this hold out and already have a pretty solid attacking line when all their players are fully fit.
