Liverpool “has already moved some pieces” in place to sign Paris-Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe, according to the Gazzetta Dello Sport.
The Italian publication claims the France international could well be “tempted” into making a move to Anfield but there will be stiff competition for the player’s signature from Real Madrid.
Mbappe has just under eighteen months remaining on his contract at PSG and, speaking about the situation in a recent interview, the 22-year-old said he is still mulling over whether to extend his stay at the Parc des Princes:
“We are in discussions with the club to try to find a suitable project. I said I was thinking about it because I think that, if I sign, it would have to be a long-term commitment to Paris Saint-Germain. I am very happy here. I have always been very happy. The supporters and the club have always helped me and for that alone, I will always be grateful.”
The comments will no doubt increase hopes that the striker could well move to the Reds, particularly after the Gazzetta Dello Sport‘s claim that Jurgen Klopp’s side are actively involved in the race to sign him.
However, the newspaper also emphasises PSG’s spending power and the Ligue One side are also hopeful that the club’s ambitions will eventually lead to Mbappe staying in France.
