Regardless, the two Premier League rivals are not the only interested parties, with the likes of Celtic, Bayern Munich and Porto all said to be keen. There is also interest from the Eredivisie, with Groningen and Heracles both eager to keep Mbuyamba in the Netherlands.
Standing at 6ft 4in, Mbuyamba has always stood out amongst his own age group, so much so that he was accelerated to the MVV first team at just 16 years old. He made his debut in November 2018, and has gone on to make ten more appearances for the club.
However, talks over a professional deal with MVV stalled, allowing the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool to enter the fray.
Whilst a move to Chelsea's impressive academy could be appealing, the chance to work alongside fellow Dutchman Van Dijk would surely present an interesting option for Mbuyamba.
The development of another Liverpool youngster, Ki-Jana Hoever, could also sway Mbuyamba's decision. The former Ajax wonderkid moved to Anfield in the summer of 2018, but managed to make his first-team debut in an FA Cup meeting with Wolverhampton Wanderers in January, despite being just 16 years old.
