Paris-Saint Germain star Kylian Mbappe has long been linked with a move to either Real Madrid or Liverpool, and Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has reportedly called Mbappe's dad in a bid to convince the 21-year-old striker to move to Anfield, according to French outlet Le10 Sport.
Under Klopp's tutelage Liverpool have risen to become arguably the world's best club side, having won the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup in the past 10 months.
And that has put them in the frame to sign Mbappe, who has scored 30 goals for Paris-Saint Germain this season.
It seems the Liverpool manager is trying to get ahead in the race to sign Mbappe, who was reportedly on the verge of completing a transfer to Madrid shortly before football was postponed amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Former PSG, Monaco and Rangers winger Jerome Rothen, who played with Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane for France, says a deal to take World Cup winner Mbappe to Spain was close to completion before football came to a halt.
