Jurgen Klopp had two reasons for contacting Kylian Mbappe’s dad

Jurgen Klopp reportedly called Kylian Mbappe's dad as speculation grows Liverpool are keen on signing the Frenchman.

Liverpool's Sadio Mane has been linked with a £150million transfer to Real Madrid in recent weeks, after Zinedine Zidane allegedly made the Senegalese his top target.

Mbappe would cost around £250m, but Liverpool, in theory, would use the £150m from the sale of Mane to fund most of the deal.

The transfer is still very unlikely at this stage, but it's not unrealistic to believe that Liverpool are looking at possible replacements in case Mane does decide he wants to swap Anfield for the Bernabeu.

According to Le10sport.com, Klopp recently spoke to Mbappe's dad Wilfried to discuss signing his son for Liverpool.

Klopp made the call for two reasons: to personally declare Liverpool's interest in snapping up the World Cup winner and to sell his vision for his son.

Mbappe hasn't spoken out on Liverpool's alleged interest in him in recent weeks, but he has previously talked about Klopp, and what he has achieved at Anfield.
