Paris Saint-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe would be open to joining Liverpool if the Reds could agree a transfer fee with the French champions, according to journalist Julien Laurens.

Mbappe has again been in impressive form for PSG during the 2019-20 campaign, scoring 21 times and providing 12 assists in 23 appearances.

The 21-year-old has long been linked with a move to Real Madrid, who are regarded by many to be the favourites to sign the France international when he leaves Paris.

However, according to French journalist Laurens, should Liverpool come up with the substantial fee needed to acquire Mbappe - potentially as much as £295m - then the 2018 World Cup winner would consider a switch to Anfield due to his desire to play in the Premier League.

"It's pretty simple," Laurens told ESPN FC. "If Liverpool can pay the €300m (£253m) or maybe €350m (£295m) with the bonuses, and put that on the table – which is what PSG will ask anyone to sign Mbappe.

"If Liverpool can afford that, plus give him the wages that he wants, he will consider that offer every single day of the week, because, yes Real Madrid is his dream and one day there is a certainty that he will play at the Bernabeu for Real Madrid.

"But he's only 21 years of age so there is plenty time for him to go and play in Madrid one day. The fact is that he also would like to play in the Premier League one day, too - and Liverpool is a very attractive proposition for any top player in the world right now with what they are putting together and the project of Jurgen Klopp."

Mbappe has scored 81 times in 110 appearances for PSG since arriving from Monaco.
