Rickie Lambert hopes Nike’s relationship with Liverpool helps to bring a “marquee signing” into Anfield, but concedes that a dream deal for Kylian Mbappe may be “out of reach”. The Reds have been linked with a reckless raid on Paris Saint-Germain for a World Cup-winning forward.
Mbappe has aired his admiration for the Premier League champions and Jurgen Klopp in the recent past. The 21-year-old considered to be dropping hints that a future move to Merseyside could be on the cards.
When asked about Liverpool signing Mabppe, Lambert told talkSPORT: “You always dream, don’t you? I was thinking with Nike taking over, every time you take over a team, they always have a marquee signing.
“I was hoping Mbappe or something. But I think he is out of our reach, to be honest.”
He added: “I would like to see Liverpool bring in at least one more forward to help with the goals, to help the front three and to give it a little bit more competition.”
