Klopp sent £200 million transfer message with Liverpool plotting big money move for ‘fantastic player’
PSG star Kylian Mbappe is a “fantastic player” but “not Liverpool’s answer” says John Barnes.
Despite leading the Premier League chase, Liverpool have been in the transfer headlines alot over the past few months as many legend of the club are urging Jurgen Klopp to splash the cash and improve the side
The Reds are said to have positioned themselves among the clutch of clubs plotting big-money approaches for a World Cup winner once an exit door swings open at Paris Saint-Germain.
But even though Barnes believes that he is a fantastic player, He has told Klopp that Mbappe is not the answer to the clubs problems, The Reds legend told BonusCodeBets, with defensive additions a priority at present as Liverpool manage their way through an injury crisis: “Mbappe is a fantastic player but forward areas are not a position that Liverpool need strengthening in, but if he can play centre-back they should get him in January!
“If Liverpool tail away and finish lower down the table, he won’t come to Liverpool – so they should worry about this season.
“If there is a possibility of getting him in January then you could go and get him, but there isn’t. Short term, Mbappe is not Liverpool’s answer. Liverpool are strong in attacking positions and have huge depth in midfield, but the centre-back position is the one that really needs addressing.
“What Liverpool want are hungry players, regardless of whether they are top players or not – the success of the club is the most important thing.
“If someone comes in and upsets the apple cart and wants to be more important than anybody else – like Neymar for example, who is one of the best players in the world but who wouldn’t suit Liverpool – it could destabilise the group’s respect and harmony.
“Signing the best players works at teams like Real Madrid where they like these Galacticos that are above other team-mates, but for Liverpool this would not work, they’re more cautious.”
