Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has changed his mind on the club’s pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe and says the Reds should now focus on Erling Haaland.

The Reds have long been linked with a move for Mbappe, who is said to be open to moving to Anfield at the end of his contract with PSG – which runs until 2022.

Anfield has always been Mbappe’s likeliest destination if he opted to move to the Premier League but Liverpool would have to break their transfer record in order to sign the former Monaco man.

Jurgen Klopp is keen on signing a new centre forward this summer and while Haaland would not be cheap, Carragher believes the former RB Salzburg man should now be the club’s priority.

‘I’ve watched the clips today, and I’ve always gone with Mbappe before… but there’s something about Haaland,’ Carragher told Sky Sports.

‘He looks mad. But in a good way. He doesn’t care.

‘The celebration in the Champions League with the goalkeeper, I loved it. I like it.

‘I’d go for Haaland.’

Liverpool kept their top four hopes alive with a 1-0 win against Wolves on Monday thanks to a goal from former Molineux striker Diogo Jota.

Roberto Firmino’s struggles in front of goal this term has convinced Klopp that he must freshen up his frontline this summer, even if Jota arrived last summer in a deal worth around £44m.

Haaland has attracted attention from Premier League rivals Manchester City and Manchester United, who are both prepared to pay around £120m for the Norwegian.
