Liverpool boss Klopp: World class stars want to join us; Mbappe...?

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has dismissed talk of signing PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe.

The Reds were linked with the France international, who has already netted 11 goals for PSG this season.

Reports in Spain suggested the 20-year-old could be a possible replacement for Mohamed Salah at Anfield, with Real Madrid eyeing the Egypt winger.

Klopp said: “I don't see any club at the moment who can buy Kylian Mbappe from PSG.

“And we are involved in the clubs that cannot do it, it is as easy as that.

“OK, from a sporting point of view, there are not a lot of reasons to not sign him, what a player he is.

“It is about the money of course.

“No chance. Absolutely no chance. Sorry for killing that story."

Klopp admits things are going well for Liverpool at the moment and Anfield is an attractive destination for world-class players.

He added: “The club is in a very good position.

“Image-wise, it maybe (always) was but now I think it is easier to live the life of a Liverpool supporter and that means automatically being in a situation to sign the players you want to sign."
