Liverpool have received a major update in their chase of PSG forward Kylian Mbappe.
The Reds have been linked with a move for the World Cup winner throughout the summer transfer window, and were rumoured to be interested in a deal next summer.
While it seems that European rivals Real Madrid are ready to pounce, it is not exactly over for the Reds.
But they could reportedly be ready to make a move for Rennes’ Eduardo Camavinga, Mbappe’s international team-mate.
Having enjoyed two strong seasons in Ligue 1, Europe’s biggest clubs are circling as the club look to cash in on the 18-year-old rather than let his contract run down.
Jurgen Klopp appears to have made some decision, though, and these are explained in Daily Star Sport’s Liverpool transfer round-up…
Madrid make Mbappe offer
Liverpool’s plan appears to have been waiting until next summer when the Frenchman's contract is up at the Parc des Princes.
But talkSPORT reported that Real, a team that Mbappe has admitted he is interested in, have made their move with a £160m offer for the 22-year-old.
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, though, suggests there could be silver lining.
PSG have not given a ‘green light’ to the deal and have ‘no intention’ to accept the offer from Real.
It does, however, mean it could be now or never for Klopp.

Reds enter Camavinga race
Rennes’ teenage midfielder has been linked with several clubs, including historic rivals Manchester United, as they look for £30m.
And 90Min have reported that Liverpool’s interest has now been piqued, with the club ‘seeking talks’ for Camavinga.
But they will face big competition from United, PSG, Real and Chelsea as Jonathan Barnett – Gareth Bale’s agent – is managing negotiations.
Klopp’s transfer take
The Anfield side’s only business so far this summer has been the arrival of Ibrahima Konate for £36m.
While Mbappe and Camavinga are linked to Liverpool, the German has hinted that it could be quiet for the rest of the window.
In comments shared by The Athletic’s James Pearce, the manager said: “I'm a football fan as well and guilty of being attracted to a story about which team might sign which player.
“The difference is I don't have that ‘itch’ when it comes to us.”
