Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have been linked with Kylian Mbappe.

Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint-Germain looks on during warmup before the French Cup match between Dijon and Paris at Stade Gaston Gerard on February 12, 2020 in Dijon, France.

Back in November 2019, Jurgen Klopp told The Irish Mirror that Liverpool could not afford Kylian Mbappe, but it seems that the Premier League club have made a U-turn over a potential transfer.

Klopp said at the time that there was “no chance” that Liverpool could afford to sign Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain.

 

However, according to El Desmarque, the Reds have made an offer for the France international striker.

The 21-year-old is reported to have offers from three other clubs, but the youngster does not plan to leave and PSG themselves do not have any intention of selling him.
