Kylian Mbappe is tempted by the idea of joining Liverpool next summer, according to reports coming out of France.
Mbappe, 21, has informed Paris St-Germain chiefs of his desire to leave the club at the end of the current season, putting a number of top European sides on alert.
Along with the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United, it is believed Liverpool are eyeing up a potential deal for the France World Cup winner amid Jurgen Klopp’s admiration for him.
And according to French outlet Le Parisien, Mbappe is tempted by the prospect of a move to Anfield in 2021.
He is said to be a keen admirer of Klopp and the style of play he has implemented on Merseyside, meaning the Reds may decide to launch an offer in the next summer transfer window.
They are highly likely to face competition from Madrid, nevertheless, who will be determined to add a few Galacticos to their ranks after not spending any money in the latest window.
Mbappe has just under two years remaining on his current PSG deal, meaning he could be available for a cut price next summer if he fails to pen an extension between now and then.
And French football expert Julien Laurens believes Liverpool and Madrid are the two leading candidates to prise him away from the Parc des Princes.
“If you ask Mbappe now about Liverpool he’s, ‘wow, it’s amazing what they do. The club is incredible. They’ve got an amazing team’,” he told talkSPORT.
“The future of Kylian Mbappe is up in the air because PSG will say, ‘okay you don’t want to extend your deal so we are going to sell you next summer’. There will be two clubs who he will be really keen on.
“Real Madrid are his dream, but Liverpool very much will be in the conversation for him and his family because he’s really in awe of what they are doing and what they are building. He spoke on the record of how good they’ve been.

“I think he used the word ‘machine’. I certainly think he will really fancy playing for a club like Liverpool if there was an opportunity there.
“I don’t think it’s just Real Madrid, I think there are others as well in Europe who have the same fascination and attraction as Real Madrid but they seem to still be the club he wants to play for.”
