Kylian Mbappé Names One Player Who We Wants At Paris Saint-Germain
Kylian Mbappé is one of Europe's top stars and proved that to be true when he became the inaugural winner of the Kopa Trophy on Monday in Paris.
The 19-year-old Paris Saint-Germain forward enjoyed a successful time with club and country last season.
He helped the French side secure a domestic treble -- Ligue 1, Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue -- while also being an integral part of Didier Deschamps' World Cup-winning squad.
The PSG star, who completed his €180m move from Monaco in the summer, has now revealed another of Europe's sought-after talents that he would like the Ligue 1 champions to bring to the French capital.
Speaking to France Football (via Sports Mole), Mbappé wants Frenkie de Jong to move away from Ajax and come to the Parc des Princes.
"His vision of the game and quality of passes breaking the lines makes him very valuable," he explained. "He's welcome at Paris! I put in a good word [for him], because he'd help us a lot."
The 21-year-old Dutch international has been a target for several of Europe's top clubs, including Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City.
Ajax wants to keep ahold of de Jong for the long term and have slapped a £75m price tag to fend off interest from the likes of City.

"I advise them to sign for Barcelona, or if not then for Pep's Manchester City.
Ajax's style is the same as Barça's, they could adapt quickly. I would also advise them to go to Barcelona because the club is in my heart."
