Liverpool transfer ‘target’ matched Kylian Mbappé as $33m signing tipped after ‘scouting trip’,deal was accepted

Liverpool is not likely to be looking for another forward this summer, but a player who matched a Kylian Mbappé record may have become a target this summer.

Liverpool has supposedly joined the race to sign a 17-goal forward who has matched a Kylian Mbappé record after impressing at Montpellier this season.

Made in Monegasque (translated by Sport Witness) explains that the Reds have already sent an ‘official’ to ‘closely observe’ Elye Wahi in action for the Ligue 1 outfit.

While Lyon won the match in question 5-4 that Liverpool supposedly had scouts in attendance for, Wahi scored all four goals for Montpellier, taking his total in the league to 22 goal contributions in 30 appearances this year.

According to Foot Mercato, Liverpool looked at signing Wahi at the back end of the January transfer window. The 20-year-old’s performances for the French side have raised his profile, and clubs across the continent are eyeing up the youngster

Moreover, Wahi recently equaled a record set by French superstar Mbappé, becoming only the second player to score more than 20 goals before turning 20 in Ligue 1 in the last four decades.


Ex-Red claims 24 y/o PL midfielder can ‘be the new Steven Gerrard’ if he joins Liverpool this summer

Neil Ruddock has urged Declan Rice to join Liverpool this summer and become ‘the new Steven Gerrard’.

The England international, who is expected to leave the Hammers at the end of the season as he approaches the final year of his current deal, has rose to prominence in the last few years with his quality displays in the middle of the park.

Although Jurgen Klopp is desperate to strengthen his midfield options this summer the Reds have never really been properly linked with a move for the 24-year-old but Ruddock believes Anfield is the best destination for the former Chelsea youngster.

The 55-year-old told talkSPORT (via West Ham Zone) when asked where the West Ham No. 41 should go this summer: “Liverpool. Obviously, I’m biased towards Liverpool, and Tottenham and Millwall, but I don’t think he’s going to play for those two.

“Liverpool are crying out for him, he’d fit in, they’d love him. He can be the new Steven Gerrard, and what a thing to be.”

Arsenal are believed to be ‘the frontrunners’ for the dynamic midfielder’s signature at the moment while Manchester United and Bayern Munich are also interested in his services (Daily Mail).

The report adds that he would prefer to remain in the Premier League.

We’d love to see the West Ham star head to Anfield because he’s a player that appears to have it all but Fabrizio Romano has revealed that our ‘priority’ at the moment is completing a deal for Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister.

Our midfield was crying out for a player like Rice this season with his ability to control the game from the engine room and there’s no doubt that he can go right to the very top if he makes the right decision this summer.

If it wasn’t for the Englishman’s £120m valuation (Sky Sports) and our failure to qualify for the Champions League maybe Klopp and Co. would’ve sounded their interest.

We’ll be happy if we can complete deal for Mac Allister alongside one or two other quality midfielders such as Khephren Thuram or Manu Kone.
