Liverpool ready to make huge bid for top 18-year-old on one condition – report
Liverpool are ready to enter the race to sign Kylian Mbappe from Monaco this summer, say reports
Liverpool are ready to enter the race to sign Kylian Mbappe from Monaco this summer – if it becomes clear the player is open to a move to the Premier League, according to reports in the British media.
The Times is reporting that the Reds are considering making a move to sign the highly-rated 18-year-old forward if they receive “encouragement” that Mbappe’s representatives see his future in England.
The same story claims that Real Madrid are still continuing to be linked with a move for the young France star and that Zinedine Zidane has spoken directly to Mbappe about a possible move to The Bernabeu.
However, it is also reported that Mbappe has been in contact with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who is said to be planning a summer “overhaul” at The Emirates.
Mbappe is understood to currently be on holiday as he ponders his options, with Monaco thought to be keen to keep the player at the club for at least another year.
Liverpool confirmed their second signing of the summer on Thursday night when they unveiled Mohamed Salah in a Reds shirt following his transfer to Roma.
The Reds are still thought to be on the lookout for a number of new players, however, as Jurgen Klopp prepares his team for a return to the Champions League next season.
