English Premier League outfit Liverpool are in a strong position to secure the signature of French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain forward Kylian Mbappe next summer transfer window as he is set to quit France.

The France international forward has already intimated the Ligue 1 giants of his decision to leave the club at the end of the season and that has attracted a lot of interest from clubs across Europe.

Kylian Mbappe’s contract with the Ligue 1 outfit runs until 2022 but the club might be forced to sell him in the summer of 2021 if he insists on leaving so as not to lose him for free.

Spanish la Liga outfit Real Madrid are known to be frontiers in the bid to secure the service of the World Cup winner if he eventually turns down all efforts by Paris Saint Germain to convince him of a change in decision.

This development sets the Premier League outfit on a path to battle Real Madrid for the signature of one of the most talented teenagers in the world.

Liverpool have been tipped by pundits to having the ability to defeat Real Madrid in the battle for the player as their reputation would be improved amongst other European Clubs.

The Premier League team could be handed a major advantage in the bid for Kylian Mbappe against Real Madrid because the Spanish la Liga outfit are also keen on other players like Erling Haaland and that could weaken them financially.

Liverpool’s only stumbling block is the fact that the 21-year-old might prefer a move to the Spanish La Liga outfit ahead of a move to the English Premier League because of his pattern of play.

However, a luring offer and a better plan must be presented to Kylian Mbappe to be able to convince him against a move to the Spanish capital.
