PSG forward Kylian Mbappe 'doesn't want to renew' his contract at PSG, according to Sport Witness.

Like with fellow wonderkid, Erling Braut Haaland, there is a lot of speculation surrounding the two forwards as we edge closer to the summer.

The Frenchman has 18 months remaining on his contract at the Parc des Princes.

There have been multiple reports surrounding his future, with L'Equipe reporting that negotiations between representatives of the club and the former Monaco striker has reared it's ugly head.

Liverpool's injury problems have highlighted a number of areas, with Fabinho and Jordan Henderson moving back down the pitch to become makeshift centre-backs, it has become clear that the Reds have lacked creativity.

A lack of finishing have been detrimental in a collapse in form for the Reds.

Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi have lead the line in the absence of Diogo Jota, who has since returned, as Liverpool's home run without a goal stretches to nearly double figures, fans have been crying out for an out and out striker.

With multiple sources suggesting that it is time for the 'fab four' to evolve amidst murmurs of discontent with Mohamed Salah.

Liverpool could face his current club Paris Saint Germain in the last eight of the Champions League with both sides advancing into the next round with convincing wins over RB Leipzig and Barcelona respectively. 

The aforementioned Norweigan has been linked with a move to Anfield alongside the 22-year-old. 

However, with contract talks going cold between Mbappe and PSG, it leaves an opportunity for Liverpool to capitalise.

Although, Le Parisien has priced the 2017 Golden Boy at around €200million

The situations surrounding the two hot European prospects appear to be no closer to a resolution, the links between Liverpool and the Frenchman will continue for the foreseeable future.
