Liverpool are interested in signing Kylian Mbappe but they are not convinced that he wants to move to England.

The Reds are monitoring the situation and have registered their interest in the player.

Real Madrid are leading the race to sign Mbappe for what is almost certain to be a world-record transfer fee.

Other clubs, including Arsenal and PSG are also interested.

Monaco want to keep him but there are reports in the French press he has turned down a 900 per cent pay rise. Monaco are willing to up his wages from £16,000 a week to £140,000 a week.

The 18-year-old forward scored 26 goals and added eight assists last season as Monaco were crowned Ligue 1 champions and advanced to the last four of the Champions League.
