Kylian Mbappe signing for Liverpool would provide a ‘headache’ for Jurgen Klopp, according to Fabinho.
The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Anfield and his former Monaco teammate has insisted he would improve any side in the world.
Mbappe has netted a staggering 81 goals in 110 appearances for the French champions since joining from Monaco in 2018, and despite admitting the World Cup winner is one of the best players in the world, Fabinho believes his arrival would cause a problem for Klopp.
“At this moment it would be a headache for Liverpool if we had him here because our attacking trio is very good,” the Brazilian told Sport Bible.
“But I know Mbappe’s quality, he’s already one of the best players in the world, so he would obviously improve any team. ‘Right now he plays for Paris Saint-Germain and we have to respect that.”
Fabinho, like Mbappe, also left Monaco in 2018, joining Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool in a deal worth £39million.
The midfielder emerged as one of the most important players in the Reds’ XI before an ankle injury halted his progress.

And he is confident Liverpool will win many more trophies as they close in on their first top flight title in 30 years.
“I might be too young to answer this question,” Fabinho added. “But in the last few years we have definitely been one of the best teams.
“You have to respect the numbers we’re achieving at the moment, even if you don’t want to talk about them. ‘Records and stats don’t make us the best, but if we carry on doing what we’re doing we will win trophies.
“Then we have to keep doing that season after season.”
