He joined Paris Saint-Germain from Monaco in 2017 and is on his way to becoming one of the world’s best players.
Reds owner John Henry reportedly flew to the south of France and invited Mbappe and his family on board his jet.
They then flew over the beautiful region for two hours and discussed his future, the report says.
Liverpool retain an interest in the French striker, who has 18 months left on his deal with PSG.
Another report in Le Parisien says PSG will demand £173million for his services.
Ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher thinks a move to the Premier League would be a perfect next step for Mbappe.
Carragher told CBS Sports: “I’m not joking, it was based on the fact that Liverpool thought they had a decent chance of getting Mbappe when he was at Monaco. I know Jurgen Klopp had spoken to him then and I’m sure other clubs had at that time.
“When Liverpool were in the Champions League final and won the Champions League a couple of years ago, I think anyone watching Liverpool there with Jurgen Klopp and the support of Anfield, if you’re ever going to go to a club in England before you go to Real Madrid.
“I think he will, guaranteed, play for Real Madrid at some stage in his career but I’d always feel that maybe Liverpool is that perfect destination for a player like that before you make that next step.”
Carragher added: “It would be Liverpool or Manchester City because they are the two top teams you’d see in the Premier League, but there’s no doubt on social media, he’s put a couple of things out when Liverpool have been playing at home in the Champions League and it’s got us all a little bit excited.”
