Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said on Friday that the Reds have "absolutely no chance" of signing Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain.
The German told reporters the European champions can not afford to land the 20-year-old, who is already widely regarded as one of the world's best strikers.
"Buying this calibre of player is difficult. I don't see any club at the moment who can buy Kylian Mbappe from PSG. I don't see any club, that is how it is. And we are involved in the clubs that cannot do it. It is as easy as that.
