Mbappe's future at PSG has looked increasingly uncertain after being heavily linked with an exit from the Parisens this summer. Al-Hilal made a world record bid of £257million for the French forward while Real Madrid was also a rumoured destination.
The former World Cup winner was even banished to play with PSG's B-team as a feud between himself and the club developed, but for now he is back in the first team picture under boss Luis Enrique.
It is still unclear whether he will sign a contract extension before the season's end, though the player and the club have maintained 'peaceful relations' since being reinstated in August and the possibility of an extension 'is not being ruled out', according to L'Equipe.
However, the report adds that Liverpool are holding out hope they can capitalise on the uncertainty around Mbappe's future, saying they have 'never broken contact with the player's entourage' since a failed move for him in 2017.
