Whether Liverpool can sign Kylian Mbappe should become clearer soon

Liverpool fans have become accustomed to the club’s unique transfer policy in recent years. It is unglamorous but incredible effective. The Reds don’t go for the big marquee buy, instead they act with surgical precision to secure top talents at bargain prices. One fantasy signing still looms on the horizon. The reality of whether or not Liverpool can sign Kylian Mbappe will become clearer in the coming weeks.

Kylian Mbappe wonderkid

Still just 22-years-old, it feels as if Kylian Mbappe has been around forever.

The French striker burst onto the scene at Monaco five years ago and he wa subsequently snapped up by PSG.

Since then he’s gone from strength to strength, scoring ridiculous amounts of goals and winning near enough everything there is to win.

This season he’s bagged 12 goals and five assists in 11 starts and four sub appearances.

Last term he banged in 18 goals in 17 starts and three games from the bench.

Liverpool interest in Kylian Mbappe

This is a story that won’t go away until the striker moves somewhere.

Liverpool interest in Kylian Mbappe is well documented.

Sport in Spain recently claimed that the Reds will fight for his signature despite a reported price tag of £160m.

Whilst AS believe Liverpool are in a ‘real position’ to sign Mbappe in the summer due to the club’s pulling power and the shared Nike affiliations.

Pochettino factor

The coming weeks and months should help clear up whether or not Liverpool signing Kylian Mbappe is possible.

At the moment the Frenchman is set to enter the final year of his deal at the end of the season.

This would put PSG in a precarious position: either sell or risk losing him on a free next year.

The recent appointment of Mauricio Pochettino as PSG manager could make all of the difference.

The Argentine will be expected to try and persuade the striker to sign a new deal to keep the wolves from descending.

Should Mbappe not sign a new contract in the coming weeks then it will be very much game on for the Reds.
