Liverpool handed main increase in pursuit of PSG star following contract calls for
Liverpool have received a big boost in pursuing Paris Saint Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe.
Liverpool’s interest in Mbappe has been well documented recently and the French superstar is said to be on Jurgen Klopp’s radar.
The talented French striker is widely considered to be one of football’s greatest attacking talents and is expected to follow in the footsteps of greats Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
After making his impressive £ 130.5m move from domestic rivals Monaco in 2018, Mbappe has scored 111 goals in 154 games across all competitions.

The 22-year-old’s last contributions came during the Paris-Saint Germain knockout game against Barcelona in the Champions League last week.
The elite striker scored an impressive hat-trick in his team’s 4-1 victory that almost sealed Barcelona’s exit from the illustrious competition.
Despite a hugely successful four year in Paris, there are growing suggestions that Mbappe could be set for another big step.
The latest in the ongoing saga comes from Foot Mercato (via Sports Witness), who claims that although contract negotiations between the club’s hierarchy and Mbappe are going well, the Frenchman is already looking further into the future.
It has been alleged that Mbappe will likely only renew the current deal if the club agrees to allow him to move in the future, and especially if “certain clubs knock on the door”.
