Kylian Mbappe 'would want' Liverpool move as verdict given on possible transfer


Former Liverpool defender Glen Johnson can "definitely see" why Kylian Mbappe would be in favour of a move to Jurgen Klopp's side this summer.

Mbappe's future at Paris Saint-Germain remains unresolved with his contract set to expire in the summer, and the 25-year-old is currently free to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs.

Liverpool and Real Madrid have been mentioned as the Frenchman's two most likely destinations as he weighs up his next move, though there remains an outside chance of Mbappe committing to his current employers past the current campaign.

The Reds have been long-term admirers of the 2018 World Cup winner, tracking him as far back as 2017 while at Monaco, and Johnson believes Mbappe would take the chance to head to Anfield should the opportunity arise.

“I can definitely see why Kylian would want to join Liverpool," stated the 39-year-old. "But are they going to break the bank for him? It kind of goes against their transfer policy. Is he worth breaking the bank for? Absolutely, but it all depends on whether Liverpool are prepared to do it.

"Everything they do is so calculated and structured but, to get this one over the line, you’ve got to forget about what the stats and the calculator says," Johnson told Betfred. "You’re going to need deep pockets. I can definitely see why the player would want the move and if Liverpool want to do it, then I’m sure every fan in the country will want to see him in the Premier League.
