Liverpool supporters have reacted excitedly to an interview that Kylian Mbappe gave to ESPN as they continue to dream of a blockbuster move for the Frenchman.
The 20-year-old superstar was asked if he was playing in a wager match on EA Sports’ FIFA 19 video game which side would he choose to play with to guarantee a win.
He responded by telling ESPN that he would choose Liverpool because they just won the Champions League and because Jurgen Klopp is a good manager.
That’s quite an impersonal response and rather factual but Liverpool fans have reacted with excitement, believing it could be another hint that the Reds are set to launch a mega bid for the French forward.
The Anfield faithful reacted with similar fervour last week when Paul Joyce retweeted a video of Mbappe hanging out with minority stakeholder LeBron James.
Here is how they’ve reacted to the striker’s comments to ESPN.

It would take a spectacular offer from Liverpool to secure Mbappe as the PSG superstar is on an enormous contract after he joined them in 2017 for £166million.
Mbappe sparked speculation when he said last month that he could start a “new project elsewhere” next season and Liverpool fans are desperate for Jurgen Klopp to move for him.
