Kylian Mbappe to Liverpool should not be considered, according to former Anfield favourite.

Liverpool legend Jason McAteer says his former club should not consider making a move for Kylian Mbappe as it's not the right time for the Frenchman to seal a move to Anfield.

The Reds continue to be linked with a move for the Paris Saint-Germain forward, who has been prolific at the Parc des Princes since he joined the Ligue 1 champions from Monaco in 2017, though, Jurgen Klopp says they are not in a good position to sign the World Cup winner.

"You can't stand still, you need to evolve. From a manager's perspective, always trying to stay two, three moves ahead," McAteer told Stats Perform News.

"It's Jurgen's job to visualise what he sees next season, preparing for upcoming seasons.

"PSG are a unique club, desperate to win the Champions League, put a fantastic squad together, [but] players want a bigger challenge.

"The Mbappe one for me doesn't sit quite right – a superstar in his own right, [but] not the right time to come to Liverpool.

"[I'm] not sure he’s Jurgen's kind of player. At the minute, just not for me.

"I'd rather see Werner or Sancho. We could see him [Mbappe] at Liverpool because he fits for different reasons, but for football, I just don't know that he fits at this current time."

Liverpool lead second-placed Manchester City by 25 points and need only two victories to secure the Premier League title once the 2019-20 season resumes on June 17.
