Liverpool have become the latest club to join the race to sign Monaco wonderkid Kylian Mbappe, and are looking to challenge Arsenal and Real Madrid for his signature.

It has been claimed in Spanish newspaper Marca that Liverpool have made two bids for Mbappe – both rejected by Monaco – but that the club is still interested.

However, it is still thought that Real Madrid remain in pole position should Mbappe choose to leave Monaco. The Spanish champions have the spending power to outbid all the other clubs thought to be in the race for the 18-year-old.

But, should Mbappe resist the lure of the Bernabeau and look to the Premier League, perhaps to a club where he may be given more game time and less pressure to develop, then Liverpool would be in that race. For instance, they can offer Champions League football next season, which Arsenal cannot.

That said, any bid for Mbappe would have to shatter Liverpool’s record transfer fee – set only today with their £36.9 million capture of Mohammad Salah from Roma – and up to £100 million has been quoted as a potential fee. Whether Liverpool’s owners, Fenway Sports Group, would be willing to splash so much is questionable.
