Liverpool have reportedly tabled an offer for Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe, according to El Desmarque, as cited via Sport Witness.

The report states that Liverpool, who have been linked to Mbappe in the past, are one of four clubs to table an offer for the Frenchman.

Mbappe’s contract at PSG expires in 2022, meaning the club don’t need to sell if they don’t wish to.

Mbappe would be a superb signing. He is that player that comes around once in a generation.

Liverpool are certainly an attractive option for the best players these days. In the past seven months, the club have won the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.

Liverpool are also 22 points clear at the top of the Premier League table, meaning that it is likely that the club will add the Premier League title to the aforementioned list of achievements.

The only issue Liverpool would face regarding signing Mbappe is the price. As he is only 21 years old, he would cost a fortune in terms of a transfer fee and wages.

Liverpool don’t have any issues in terms of scoring goals, which means it is unlikely that the Reds would be prepared to spend a huge sum on a forward at this moment and time. However, he would be a superb addition if one thinks about the future.

    I suspect all Mbappe stories are simply a figment of the ‘football-news echo-chamber’ and have little basis in fact.

    FSG have certainly backed the team financially but with a certain prudence.
    Klopp’s net spend over his 4 years = £71m.

    Buying the world’s most expensive player, at top dollar, to fix a problem that really doesn’t exist, simply does not fit the strategy seen thus far.
