Kylian Mbappe once called Liverpool target Dusan Vlahovic 'one of the best of his generation'

Liverpool have been linked with a move to sign Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic, and PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe is a massive fan of the Serbian.

CalcioMercatoWeb revealed this week that Jurgen Klopp is desperate to sign the 22-year-old, who suffered heartbreak at the 2022 FIFA World Cup last night despite scoring to give Serbia the lead in the second half.

Kylian Mbappe once called Liverpool target Dusan Vlahovic ‘one of the best of his generation’

Vlahovic only joined Juventus in January this year.

The Old Lady splashed £66.6 million to sign him (Sky Sports), but he hasn’t quite been able to replicate the form that he showed at Fiorentina in his final two seasons there.

However, the Serbian has still managed to score seven times for Juventus this season in 15 appearances, which is not a bad record by any means. That’s why he’s so highly rated – even Mbappe is a huge fan of him.

The French superstar said in an interview a few months ago, as quoted by Football Italia: “Vlahovic is a quality striker, he is one of the best of his generation. He can do much better going forward, he has so much to give.

“He has already shown so much, Only time will tell, but I don’t think it is a big risk for me to say that he will be a top striker in the coming years.”

TBR View:

After spending so much money on Nunez just a few months ago, we just can’t see why Liverpool will go back in on another striker.

However, if for some reason Jurgen Klopp decides to do it, Vlahovic would be a sensational signing.

The Serbian is good with the ball at his feet, brilliant in the air and his shooting is magnificent too. He’s already a top-class striker, and the fact that he’s still only 22 means he’ll only get better in the coming years.

It will be interesting to see what happens with Vlahovic, but we’ll be shocked if Liverpool go and sign him.
