PSG ace Kylian Mbappé has been handed some transfer advice, while Liverpool have reportedly identified two potential replacements for Mohamed Salah.
Liverpool have reportedly lined up two potential transfers as possible successors to Mohamed Salah next year.
As per Football Transfers, the Reds are looking at Juventus star Federico Chiesa and Bayern Munich’s Leroy Sané as they consider targets that will one day replace the Egyptian.
Salah currently has two years left on his contract at Anfield, but has been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia at various points during the summer (according to the Mirror). Therefore, Liverpool has supposedly taken early steps to look toward his potential heirs on the right of the frontline.
Chiesa looks set to stay at Juventus this season, despite being linked with a move away throughout the summer, but could be available again next year, with £18m touted as his expected value.
Meanwhile, Sané has had an expected value of around £42m placed on him, with the German international under contract at Bayern until 2025. By next year, though, he will be almost 29.
Former Chelsea defender and French World Cup winner Marcel Desailly believes Kylian Mbappé would be an perfect fit at Liverpool.
Mbappé looks likely to leave Paris Saint-Germain in the next 12 months, having indicated he won’t sign a contract extension with the French club.
The forward has been reintegrated into Luis Enrique’s squad over the past week, suggesting he could be set to stay in the French capital this season, but a departure looks to be in the offing next year, most likely to Real Madrid.
Desailly though believes Liverpool could prove to be the perfect fit for the 24-year-old. He told BoyleSports: “They (Liverpool) did not replace [Sadio] Mané with someone who was going to be as good, someone who had his philosophy and impact.
“I do believe Liverpool could suit Mbappé to fill that hole. Liverpool are not at the end of a cycle, unlike Chelsea. The choice he has to make is not one or two years but four or five.
“Liverpool have not sold most of their players, they have managed to keep a foundation at Anfield. They had a drop after many years of doing well, which was linked to selling Mané.”
