Jurgen Klopp has admitted that there is 'absolutely no chance' of Liverpool making a move for Paris-Saint Germain star Kylian Mbappe
The Frenchman, who has scored nine goals in 11 games this season, was linked with the Reds back in 2017 before opting to move to PSG from Monaco.
Liverpool are reportedly close to signing a blockbuster kit deal with Nike and as the 20-year-old is also sponsored by the company, Reds fans started the #Mbappé2020 movement across various social media outlets to try and convince the him to make the move to Merseyside.
“OK, from a sporting point of view, there are not a lot of reasons to not sign him," Klopp said, as quoted by The Guardian.
"What a player he is. But it is about the money of course. No chance. Absolutely no chance. Sorry for killing that story."
Although a move for Mbappe has been ruled out, Liverpool have also been linked with a number of other young players.
Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Håland has been touted as a potential transfer target in recent weeks, while the club's former midfield general Dietmar Hamann has similarly revealed that Klopp has a "great interest" in signing ex-Manchester City winger Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
Though he did not address these rumours directly, the Liverpool boss did state he was confident the club are capable of attracting some big names in the forthcoming transfer windows.
He added: "
"Image-wise, it maybe always was but now I think it is easier to live the life of a Liverpool supporter and that means automatically being in a situation to sign the players you want to sign.”
Klopp's side are currently undefeated in the Premier League but will face their toughest challenge of the season so far when second placed Manchester City travel to Anfield
