Former Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse has admitted he is 'dreaming' of seeing Kylian Mbappe play for his old club.
The Reds have long been linked with a move for the Paris Saint-Germain star, who is regarded as one of the best players in his position in the world.
And the Ligue 1 giants may be forced to sell the World Cup-winner if they are to be able to afford a blockbuster move for Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
The prospect of Mbappe linking up with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino is certainly an exciting one.
And speaking in an interview with the Daily Mail Cisse talked up the possibility of his fellow Frenchman making the switch to Anfield.
"First of all he's clever, he's a team-player so he can play in different positions and he will match with Salah and Sadio," Cisse said.
"If Firmino stays, you know, it will be a crazy team. For me that would be the best team in the world.
"He would be the one. I don't know what Liverpool can do in terms of investment but it would be a big move for a key player. I want to dream, and I want to see him there.'
Cisse has been disappointed by what he has seen from Jurgen Klopp's side in recent weeks, and does not think they can use injuries as a valid excuse for their poor form.
"They missed a few players but it's not an excuse," he added. "If you want to be champions you have to win games, especially at home.
"It's a difficult situation, no crowd and no atmosphere to boost you on when you need. But still, you can't lose points at home.
"Last season they were really destroying every team. Even top teams at the same level as them. I don't know if it's also the accumulation of games, the players are tired, [Virgil] Van Dijk is injured and they now have a lot of injured players.
"For sure, it's not the same Liverpool we're used to seeing from last season. At the moment they're giving the other teams the opportunity to catch up and it's not good."
