Kylian Mbappe Liverpool Transfer Won't Be Happening, Klopp Already Confirmed.

Liverpool legend John Barnes does not think his former side should be looking to secure the services of PSG striker Kylian Mbappe. The Reds legend is convinced the France international, who Fabiano would like to play with at Anfield, is not the right fit for Jurgen Klopp's team on Merseyside.


The former Monaco forward Mbappe continues to attract interest from several clubs in Europe, including Barcelona, Real Madrid and Liverpool.

"They'll need to sign another forward at some point in case one of the front three leaves but it will have to fit what Klopp wants," Barnes told the Daily Mail. "Kylian Mbappe is fantastic on the ball but would he do the other stuff? I'd suggest if you're a 21-year-old superstar, your attitude isn't going to change."

The former England international Barnes added: "Ninety-nine percent of people wouldn't pick (Jordan) Henderson and (Georginio) Wijnaldum above Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva or even Jack Grealish or James Maddison, but they work for Liverpool. "Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri came in for the Barcelona semi-final, their attitude was great and they were physically ready. It shows they were training well, waiting for their chance. "Jurgen creates that environment. One of the bravest things was letting Philippe Coutinho go and not directly replacing him. Liverpool trusted him."
