Kylian Mbappe has done little to quell the speculation over him moving to Liverpool after praising the club and manager Jurgen Klopp.

The Paris Saint-Germain superstar has been linked with a move to the Reds this summer, although PSG have said they have absolutely no intention of selling the 20-year-old.

However, the World Cup winner has hardly reassured fans in Paris that he is staying when he was asked which team he would pick given a free choice on video game FIFA.

In an interview with ESPN, Mbappe was asked: "We play one game and we bet, who do you pick?" After a brief pause, he replied: "I play with Liverpool because they win the Champions League."

Mbappe was then asked if he likes Jurgen Klopp, replying: "Yeah he's good."

While it is hardly a confirmation that a move is about to happen, the Frenchman is clearly happy to have his name linked with a move to Anfield by bringing the club up.

The prolific striker also openly talked about a potential move to America later in his career, name-dropping a Liverpool legend in the process.

"We don’t know what happens in football," said Mbappe.

"Now in the USA, a lot of great players come after their careers in Europe, like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Andrea Pirlo, great players.

"You don’t know what can happen, maybe when I’m a little older I can think about this."

Mbappe had an incredible goal-scoring season with PSG, netting 33 times in 29 Ligue 1 games and scoring 39 in 43 across all competitions.

The forward cost PSG £166m from Monaco in 2017 and with the club not wanting to sell him, it seems that he would cost a prohibitively huge amount for a transfer to happen this summer.
