It has been a rather strange summer for the Liverpool fans as their club has shown great intent in the transfer window, having qualified for the Champions League, but they have signed just one player for the first team, with just days to go for the transfer window to be officially open.
Though they managed to clinch Mohamed Salah from AS Roma, they are still looking to shore up their defence and break the bank to land Virgil van Dijk from Southampton but one strange link that does not refuse to go away is Liverpool monitoring the situation of French sensation Kylian Mbappe.
A youth product of AS Bondy in France, Kylian is now the talk of Europe, after his blistering performances for club and country in the previous season. At just 18, the versatile attacker picked up 26 goals and 14 assists in France last season and also made his international debut for France.
He is easily the most exciting teenager on show at the moment and is wanted by the biggest clubs in Europe this summer. Real Madrid have already had a €130m bid rejected by AS Monaco while Arsenal are also monitoring his situation.
Though the Frenchman revealed that a move to the Bernabeu is his dream, Jurgen Klopp seems determined to land him. According to the Times, Liverpool are ready to do what it takes to land him this summer if Kylian wants to ever play for an English club.
With skills that make you numb and dribbling that can break ankles, Mbappe has tormented almost every defender in France and is destined for great things in the near future. At just 18, he is already a crucial part of the national side and that exposure will allow him to thrive away from France as well.
He should ultimately move out of the Ligue 1 for better challenges and though the La Liga is a decent option, the Premier League is just what he needs to make himself the next superstar.
Arsene Wenger and his methods might be tempting for Kylian but at Liverpool, he could turn into the next player that Klopp turns into a world beater. Like with Robert Lewandowski at Dortmund, Klopp will build his Liverpool side around the Monaco man and allow him to thrive in an environment that gets the best out of him.
The Reds are not quite known for making such huge purchases but the player’s age will make Mbappe a long term investment, with more than reasonable returns expected. So even as a business model, around €130m on Mbappe is a healthy investment and potentially game changing one.
