Liverpool boss Klopp eager to land PSG star Mbappe after 4-year pursuit

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp retains hope of bringing PSG striker Kylian Mbappe to Anfield.

Sport says the Reds will provide the main competition to Real Madrid for the forward's signature.

And Klopp is 'willing to fight' for the France international having been in regular contact with his representatives since 2016.

However, Real Madrid are believed to be the favourites to sign the World Cup winner though the financial ramifications of the Spanish government's lockdown make a deal difficult to complete.

If the former AS Monaco star decides against extending his contract in France, he would have a year left on his contract, and as per the report, PSG would then be pressured to lower their demands.

The Ligue 1 giants still need to be convinced to sell with Liverpool the 'main rival' to Real Madrid with Klopp 'wanting to coach' the striker next season and Mbappe said to be attracted by their interest.
