Liverpool fans predict Kylian Mbappe transfer after Trent Alexander-Arnold clue


Liverpool fans are predicting Kylian Mbappe is on his way to the club after Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cheeky message to the PSG star.

Alexander-Arnold mimicked Mbappe’s trademark celebration after his stunning goal capped off Liverpool’s 4-0 trouncing of Premier League title rivals Leicester on Boxing Day.

The Reds right-back had already set up two goals, taking him to 20 assists since the start of last season – more than any other player in the Premier League.

And afterwards he tweeted a picture of himself celebrating, along with the message: “Anything Mbappe can do…” along with a ‘crying laughing’ emoji and the hashtag YNWA (You’ll Never Walk Alone).

Alexander-Arnold could be sharing a dressing room with Mbappe soon amid speculation Liverpool are lining up a bid for the £180million-rated Paris-Saint Germain striker.

And the 21-year-old’s tweet had Liverpool fans convinced that would be the case – especially when the French World Cup winner, also 21, liked a Twitter post featuring pictures of the two players’ celebrations .

One fan tweeted: “Champions of the world, top of the Premier League and Trent’s just confirmed we’re signing Mbappé. What a time to be alive.”

Another posted: “You can’t tell me for sure Mbappe isn’t coming when Trent is doing a full on Mbappe celebration. Watch this space.”

Mbappe is reportedly refusing to enter into negotiations over a new contract and is believed to be keen on a move to Spanish giants Madrid.

But Liverpool are also one of several clubs reported to have an interest in the 21-year-old.

And a move to Anfield could be attractive to Mbappe, with Jurgen Klopp’s side now champions of the world as well as Europe, and 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League following their 4-0 win over second-placed Leicester.

Klopp this week appeared to pour cold water on the prospect of a move for Mbappe, who would likely cost around £180million, saying the calibre of French player Liverpool would require simply costs too much money.

The manager said: “We would like to have a French player, but some of them are too expensive for us.”

It remains to be seen whether the Liverpool boss was simply being coy about a move for Mbappe.
