Kylian Mbappe: Jurgen Klopp meets with ace’s agent… Arsenal pessimistic of deal – Report

LIVERPOOL are well in the race to sign Kylian Mbappe, according to reports from France.

Kop boss Jurgen Klopp apparently met with the Moncao youngster’s representatives last month.

He has propelled Liverpool into the hunt for the in-demand teenager – but it’s a different story for Manchester United and Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger is said to be privately pessimistic about doing a deal.

And Jorge Mendes’ insistence in being involved with a potential transfer which would see Mbappe move to Old Trafford looks to have ended United’s hopes.

That’s all according to L’Equipe who have delivered a series up updates on the chase for Mbappe.

The 18-year-old has shot to fame this season as he helped fire Monaco to Ligue 1 glory and the Champions League semi-finals.

He’s attracting the attention of the world’s top clubs.

Real Madrid were expected to be in pole position with the offer of a massive transfer fee.

Real Madrid were expected to be in pole position with the offer of a massive transfer fee.

United and Manchester City were also showing a serious interest with proposals thought to be on the table.

Arsenal are said to have had an £87m bid rejected – but Wenger doesn’t think he will land Mbappe, according to L’Equipe.

The big surprise news is Liverpool’s shock position near the front of the queue for Mbappe.

Klopp met the Forward’s entourage and clearly make a big impression.

It will be interesting to see if Liverpool can stump up the massive fee required to get the deal done.

It will be equally interesting to see where that money would come from if Mbappe decides he wants to head to Anfield.
