The France international has emerged as one of the most-exciting prospects this summer following his outstanding performances in Ligue 1 and the Champions League over the past season.
Mbappe scored 15 goals and made eight assists in 29 appearances in Ligue 1 last term to help Monaco wrestle the French title from cash-rich Paris Saint-Germain.
The 18-year-old netted six times in nine appearances in the Champions League despite his inexperience to help Monaco reach the semi-finals before losing 4-2 to Serie A giants Juventus.
Mbappe has been heavily linked with a move to Premier League champions Chelsea and FA Cup holders Arsenal in the summer transfer window.
Liverpool have been something of a surprise contender to sign Mbappe ahead of the 2017-18 Premier League campaign.
Asked during an interview with ESPN FC about what club could sign Mbappe in the summer, Nicol replied: “Liverpool.”
Liverpool secured a return to the Champions League next term.
The Reds have never won the Premier League title but the Merseyside outfit finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.
