Liverpool are in need of a star forward. The Reds are short of a clinical striker to mop up the half chances which are currently going wasted. Kopites may have cause to get excited this summer. A report has claimed that Liverpool linked Kylian Mbappe has handed in a transfer request.
Liverpool links to Kylian Mbappe
Since the forward was lighting it up at Monaco we’ve seen Liverpool links to Kylian Mbappe.
ESPN are one of a number of outlets to report on the Reds’ interest.
He won’t come cheap, however. According to Guillem Balague, PSG would demand at least £155m for the boy wonder.
Should the Reds have the money to finance a bid then we would be in with a shot.
Duncan Castles has claimed that Liverpool is the striker’s preferred destination should he move to the Premier League.
Kylian Mbappe transfer request
This summer sees the forward enter the final year of his deal at PSG.
The French side have struggled to deliver on their ultimate ambition: winning the Champions League.
Last term they didn’t even manage to win their domestic league with Lille pipping them to the title.
According to RMC, via Marca, Kylian Mbappe has handed in a transfer request.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool cannot afford to buy Kylian Mbappe.
The Reds could, however, tempt him on a free transfer should the opportunity arise.
The Frenchman can negotiate with other clubs from January if he doesn’t sign a new deal.
He previously described Liverpool as a ‘machine’, surely he’d want to join that machine?
