Kylian Mbappe tells Liverpool what they missed after forward brought to justice

Liverpool transfer news as PSG and France star Kylian Mbappe praises striker who could have been on the books at Anfield if things had gone differently

Kylian Mbappe has told Liverpool what in-form striker Evan Ferguson has been missing.

The Reds may have been linked with a move for the striker from Paris Saint-Germain in recent years. And when Mbappe speaks, people tend to listen to what he has to say.

Some of Mbappe’s latest comments relate to a player Liverpool fans may know. Brighton striker Evan Ferguson is preparing to face Mbappe in the international squad. France will face the Republic of Ireland in a Euro 2024 qualifying match in Dublin on Monday night. Ferguson has been a star player for Brighton this season and will take charge for Ireland.

However, he could have turned out very differently. The Seagulls frontman was once a trialist at Liverpool, before opting to join Brighton from Bohemians in January 2021.

During his time in Ireland, Ferguson went to the UK to try and sign for a Premier League club. As well as Liverpool, Ferguson has also had trials with Everton, Manchester United and also Scottish Premiership giants Celtic.

And now he has come to the attention of Mbappé, who praised the striker, a player who could have been on Liverpool’s books had things gone differently.

In a pre-match press conference Sunday before the Republic of Ireland against France, Mbappé said. “We’ve seen some of his actions, he’s a very good striker. We’ll be very wary of him and hopefully we won’t see him much.”

He added: “They are a team that plays three in defense. “We tend to think it’s a combative team. We’ll have to be careful, but also offensive and aggressive.”

France manager Didier Deschamps has also explained why his team should be wary of Ferguson’s quality.

“Now there’s a new Irish generation with new players,” said Deschamps.

“Ferguson is a threat, a good player. Johnston also joined the team. It’s a mix of young and experienced players.

“Ireland are known for playing direct and vertical, but from what I’ve seen in recent games they are also capable of playing the ball on the ground. Of course they also have a new manager who will come in 2020 has arrived.”
