Liverpool are going to bring a striker in this summer. The Reds have been in dire need of a lethal forward for some time but it appears as though the time has come to make the move. Thierry Henry has been raving over Kylian Mbappe amid links to Liverpool.
Liverpool target Kylian Mbappe
For years the Reds have been linked with the French crown prince of football.
ESPN are one of a number of outlets to report on Liverpool interest in Kylian Mbappe.
The youngster has been dominating French football since his teenage years.
He just keeps getting better and with this summer seeing him enter the final year of his deal in Paris now could be the time for him to move on.

Liverpool interest is welcome as we are desperate for a lethal striker.
Thierry Henry on Kylian Mbappe
The young Frenchman has inevitably drawn comparisons with a legendary compatriot.
A particular Arsenal legend is always being compared to PSG’s boy wonder.
Speaking to UMM, Thierry Henry heaped praise on Kylian Mbappe:
“I think he’s the king of his own kingdom. I had my time and he has his time. The only thing I’m happy about is that he’s French. He’s the king of his own kingdom and I love that.
“People always speak about speed, and what I could do, and what he does so well is that he doesn’t slow down when he has the ball, when he has the ball he looks even more fast. It’s actually crazy, I knew I was fast, and I know the man himself is very fast, but I guess we’ll never know [who is faster].”
What RTK has to say
Whilst Liverpool signing Kylian Mbappe is the absolute dream, we don’t think it’ll happen – at least not this summer.
Thierry Henry isn’t the only one who is in absolute awe of the young lad.
Fingers crossed he’ll see his contract out at PSG and we can snap him up on a free transfer next summer.
