Bid rejected: Why Liverpool can’t take no for an answer in pursuit of lethal forward

The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their club to launch a few big moves this summer…

The latest Liverpool move, depending on who you believe, is reportedly one for Kylian Mbappe – which Monaco are said to have rejected. However, if Jurgen Klopp is serious about turning the fortunes of his side around – he simply cannot take no for an answer.

For the longest time, Liverpool have unfortunately fallen behind within the context of the Premier League. A lack of success has simultaneously led to a lack of world class talent, with Luis Suarez one example of a top player that they simply haven’t been able to hang on to in recent years.

Under Jurgen Klopp, this does seem to be changing. Players like Adam Lallana and Philippe Coutinho are slowly turning into genuinely world class players, and under the guidance of the German – it seems like the fortunes of Liverpool FC are slowly turning. What the club really need now, though, is a big player to build their side around – a player like Mbappe. He is one of Europe’s most in-demand players, and his arrival would undoubtedly help cement the Reds at the top of the European pile once again.

All of this is, of course, without even considering how much of an impact he would have on the field. He has bagged 15 goals in the French league this year, which is a remarkable record. Not to mention, he is also just 18-years-old, meaning not only is he likely to get even better in the years to come – but he will also be able to man the Liverpool front line for over a decade. When you consider that you could get 10-15 years of service out of him, €100 million doesn’t seem so bad.

Are Liverpool likely to make a move? Unlikely, but if Klopp is serious about his intentions, he needs a player of that quality.
