3 linked forwards & why they’re not signing this summer – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool transfer rumours continue to take centre stage for the summer, but it remains to be seen how many of them actually go through. Possibly not many!


Mbappe contract talks restart

PSG have reopened discussions for a new deal for Kylian Mbappe, say reports in France, with the club president now personally involved to try and get a deal done.

The Reds have been relentlessly linked with him for over a year, along with Real Madrid, and he was claimed to have asked to leave recently despite a suggestion that a big-money transfer this year seems improbable.

FranceFootball claim neither of Mbappe’s suitors can afford the fee this summer – nor his astronomical wages – and the suggestion is that a free transfer next summer is more likely.

Even then, a reported salary of £600,000 a week seems outlandish and out of reach at Anfield.
