Europe’s top clubs have been put on red alert following the news that teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe has decided to leave Monaco.
Liverpool are believed to be on that list of sides tracking the French starlet, who is expected to cost close to the £100million mark.
Jurgen Klopp has been in regular contact with the 18-year-old’s representatives with the Reds having not been ruled out of a move for the striker, according to French outlet L’Equippe, per the Liverpool Echo.
Reports earlier in the year suggested Liverpool would be prepared to make an approach for the youngster were he to opt for a move to England as the next step in his career.
Mbappe is believed to have understandably grown frustrated over the sale of star players at Monaco, with Bernando Silva and Benjamin Mendy both joining Manchester City and Tiemoué Bakayoko moving to Chelsea.
Contact between Klopp and the player’s camp could mean absolutely anything at this stage, with the latest report showing signs of being the kind of propaganda designed to fuel an influx of offers.
Fighting off the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid seems an impossible task, although Klopp’s proven luring powers shouldn’t be ruled out.
Another report certainly worth taking with a pinch of salt, though.
