Liverpool are reportedly ready to launch a big-money approach for Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe next summer.
Despite having over two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract at the Parc des Princes, there appears little possibility of the World Cup winner penning fresh terms in the future.
While Real Madrid are regarded as the favourites to push through a deal for the 20-year-old, El Desmarque claims that Liverpool are genuine rivals in the race to sign the France international.
The report suggests that, as a result of a quiet summer, the Premier League leaders have the funds required to tempt PSG into parting ways with the attacker ahead of next season.
Mbappe is likely to command a transfer fee in the region of £200m, which was required for PSG to sign Neymar from Barcelona in 2017.
Since joining from Monaco in the same month, Mbappe has scored 69 goals from 90 appearances in all competitions.body check tags ::
