#Mbappe2020 Is Trending Online As Liverpool Set To Win Lucrative Nike Deal

Nike are set to become Liverpool's new sponsors after the club won their High Court battle with New Balance, and fans are already speculating about future transfers.

Liverpool were in a bitter dispute with their current kit supplier, who claimed their contract allowed them to match any offer from another brand.

But the European powerhouse eventually ended that deal on Friday and are ready to pen a lucrative deal with Nike driven by revenue opportunities.

He spent 'several hours' speaking to the French forward in 2016/17, according to French publication L'Equipe.

Klopp showered Mbappe with praise ahead of Liverpool's Champions League clash against PSG last season.

"I love him, to be honest. What a player he is and a nice lad as well, so he's a really good kid," Klopp told RMC Sport.

"What a player, what a player.

"Everyone knows him since he was 16, 17, when he impressed in Monaco's youth teams, and I saw videos of him when he was 17 and he destroyed defensive lines as he is doing now.

"He's at an unbelievable level of consistency at that age. He's an outstanding player, that's clear, but he can deliver, deliver and deliver, which shows he's really good educated boy and he knows what he is doing."

Do you think Mbappe would join Liverpool next season?
