Liverpool have been backed to beat La Liga giants Real Madrid in the race to secure services of PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe, should the talented Frenchman look to depart from PSG for pastures new.
The 21-year-old forward has been continually rumoured with a transfer away from Ligue 1 champions for a window forthcoming, with the La Liga heavyweights often mentioned in the same breath.
The Merseyside Reds are sometimes sprinkled in there too, however, no credible source is yet to claim the Premier League giants are interested in pursuing France international forward.
According to ex-England man Kevin Phillips, the Merseyside Reds could have an advantage over Real Madrid – and anyone else interested – with Jurgen Klopp at the helm.
“I think Klopp can persuade Mbappe to come,” he told Football Insider. “It is all well and good playing for PSG but he is playing against nobody. As a player, come and challenge yourself in the Premier League.
“Come to the best league in the world. Come to one of the best clubs in the world and challenge yourself against top defenders week in, week out.
“If one of their front three were to move on – what a player Mbappe would be for Liverpool. Klopp has enough pulling power to convince any player.”
The Frenchman is one of the very best players in the world and would be a perfect addition to Jurgen Klopp’s side.
