Mbappe To Liverpool? – Ex-Red Has His Say

With Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe having been linked with Liverpool, one of the English club's former players has discussed a potential move for the Frenchman.

While both FC Barcelona and Real Madrid appear to be contenders to sign the 20-year-old at some point, he has also been linked with a move to Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, winners of last season's UEFA Champions League.

Former Reds left-back Stephen Warnock has admitted he would love to see Mbappe in a Liverpool shirt, but believes the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner could be put off as players from the Premier League do not usually win the biggest individual accolades.

"I just think, because of the way Liverpool have elevated themselves in the last couple of years under Jurgen Klopp, people are now putting stories together linking them with the best players in the world," Warnock told the Liverpool Echo.

"Let's be honest, why wouldn't they want to play under Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool? The atmosphere is incredible and so is the manager.

"They have reached two Champions League finals in the last two seasons and a Europa League final not long before that. It's very appealing to go to Liverpool at the moment.

"Would Mbappe go to Liverpool? You know what, why wouldn't he come? Why wouldn't he want to play against the best players in the Premier League and really test himself?

"I think the one problem we face over here with players like that is they often feel like they can only win the Ballon d'Or if they go to Real Madrid or Barcelona.

"Why can't there be a shift? Why can't there be a Premier League team who dominates Europe for a number of years?

"He is obviously a player who you would love to see in the Premier League. I would love to see him at Liverpool. Whether it will happen or not, I'm not so sure. That's only something he would answer.

"It will also depend on the form of Barcelona and Real Madrid. If he feels that those sides are not close to winning the Champions League, then maybe that's something he might look at."

Messi's Incredible All-Time Record Under Threat

Mbappe has scored 10 goals and assisted a further four strikes in 13 matches for PSG so far this season.

Do you think Mbappe would be tempted to join Liverpool if they make a formal approach for him? Let us know in the comments section below.
