Liverpool and Real Madrid are interested in signing Kylian Mbappe.

Liverpool and Real Madrid are hoping to capitalise on the uncertainty surrounding Kylian Mbappe’s future and sign him in January, L’Equipe reports.

The 17-year-old attacker, born in France, is out-of-contract at the end of this season and has yet to agree a new deal with Monaco.

ASM’s vice president Vadim Vasilyev will sit down with Mbappe’s entourage this week hoping to reach terms on a new deal, knowing that both Liverpool and Real Madrid are circling the young prospect with the hope of stealing him away from the principality on a a cut price deal this month.

The report claims that Mbappe is questioning his playing chances at Monaco considering they have recruited a number of attacking players in recent months, and he could be convinced to sign with the Reds or Madrid if a route to the first-team is evident.

Still just 17, Mbappe has played four times for Monaco’s first-team. He made his debut in December 2015, playing two minutes of a 1-1 draw with Caen in Ligue 1, before going on to play against Spurs in the Europa League, Saint-Etienne in the league, and playing the entire 90 minutes against Bordeaux in a defeat in the Coupe de la Ligue.
