Real Madrid and Liverpool are reportedly in regular contact with Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe over a potential 2021 summer transfer.

Zinedine Zidane's side have been long linked with a move for Mbappe who still has two years left on his PSG contract. And now, according to L'Equipe, Liverpool have their eye on the French forward's contract situation and are hoping to lure him to the Premier League.

The Times reported last week that Mbappe had told PSG that he intends to leave the club in 2021, and as reported by Le10 Sport, the striker is weighing up his next move.

L'Equipe goes on to claim that Mbappe isn't interested in a move to Juventus where he could link up with Cristiano Ronaldo, and a move to Manchester City won't happen owing to the fact that PSG’s Qatari owners will reportedly not entertain talks with a club owned by a group from the United Arab Emirates.

The 21-year-old grew up as a fan of fellow Frenchman Zidane and could be tempted by a move to Los Blancos. Zidane has long been an admirer of Mbappe and thinks he is the perfect player to lead a new generation of 'Galacticos'.

But Klopp is equally a big fan of the player, previously admitting that it would be difficult to turn down a chance to bring Mbappe to Anfield. "Buying this calibre of player is difficult," Klopp said earlier this year.

"I don't see any club at the moment who can buy Kylian Mbappe from PSG. I don't see any club, that is how it is. And we are involved in the clubs that cannot do it. It is as easy as that. OK, from a sporting point of view, there are not a lot of reasons to not sign him. What a player he is. But it is about the money of course. No chance. Absolutely no chance. Sorry for killing that story."
