Liverpool have not yet made any formal bid for Europe's hottest property, Kylian Mbappe.
Reports in Spain today claimed that Monaco have already rejected a formal bid from the Reds of 75m euros for their 18-year-old striking sensation.
Real Madrid, Manchester United and Barcelona are all said to be interested in the French prodigy but Marca claimed that Liverpool had been the first to make their move with a formal bid.
However the ECHO understands that Liverpool have not made any such move.
Like most of the top teams in Europe, Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp are interested in Mbappe but have not followed that up with any concrete proposal.
Mbappe's 15th league goal of the season clinched the French title for Monaco this week and his stunning displays in the Champions League have alerted the whole of Europe to his potential.
He has previously suggested he would like to stay at least another year in Monaco and the club's Russian billionaire owner Dimitri Rybolovdev has stressed that his club does not need to sell.
Real Madrid is considered the most likely future destination for Mbappe.
The suggested 75m euros 'bid' for Mbappe, around £64m, would be almost double the record fee Liverpool have ever paid for a player, the £35m forked out for Andy Carroll in January 2011.
Monaco meanwhile continue to insist they want the player to stay with them.
Vice president and CEO Vadim Vasilyev told CNN that the club's priority was to keep hold of the youngster, who totalled 26 goals in all competitions.
"It is part of our model that some players leave but now we are financially much stronger than two years ago.
"With all these young players, we know that their value will never go down because they are so talented and ambitious.
"To keep Mbappe? It is our priority."
