Liverpool fans urge Klopp to sign Champions League goal machine
By Will Butcher
Liverpool fans are desperate to see Jurgen Klopp enter the summer transfer window for Monaco star Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe, 18, broke two Champions League records on Wednesday evening as he found the back of the net inside just three minutes of Monaco’s quarter-final tie against Borussia Dortmund.
The two-time France international lashed home a loose ball inside the Dortmund box, making him the first player to score in his first four consecutive Champions League knockout games.
He also broke the record as the youngest player to score five Champions League goals in the history of the elite tournament, as Monaco won 3-1 on the night and 6-3 on aggregate.
Goals from Falcao and Valere Germain ensured victory in France, despite Marco Reus giving Dortmund hope after fine work from speed machine Ousmane Dembele.
