Liverpool keeping tabs on 18-year-old despite transfer concerns – report
Liverpool monitoring AS Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe despite doubts about teenager's desire to move to the Premier League, according to reports
Liverpool are monitoring Kylian Mbappe’s situation despite not being convinced that the Monaco striker wants to move to the Premier League, according to reports in England.
Sky Sports is reporting that Liverpool have made known their interest in signing the 18-year-old striker in the 2017 summer transfer window.
However, the same story reveals that the Merseyside outfit believe Mbappe isn’t interested in making the switch to English football this summer.
Mbappe has been linked with a move to Premier League duo Arsenal and Liverpool but La Liga giants Real Madrid are thought to be favourites to sign the teenager.
The France international has established himself as one of the most-exciting prospects in European football following an exciting breakthrough season at AS Monaco.
Mbappe scored 15 times in 26 appearances in Ligue 1 as AS Monaco won the French top-flight title ahead of Paris Saint-Germain in 2016-17.
The teenager proved his quality on Europe’s biggest stage with a credible return of six goals in nine appearances in the Champions League.
