Bayern Munich striker Mario Götze has confirmed that he is in regular contact with his former manager and current Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, as rumours continue to circulate over a possible summer move to Anfield.

Klopp and Götze enjoyed a sparkling working relationship during their time together at Borussia Dortmund and the striker who scored Germany's winning goal in the 2014 World Cup final is believed to be a transfer target for Liverpool.

The striker has struggled to make his mark at Bayern due to injuries and dips in form and he revealed he is still in touch with Klopp.

“We are texting now and again,” Götze told German television station ZDF. “He was my coach at Borussia Dortmund, but there is nothing special.”

Götze denied he had spoken to Klopp about a possible move to Liverpool, but he admitted he has yet to decide where he will be playing next season.

“It hinges on many factors," he added. "Everything else will show in the future. We are still in the current season but, sure, it’ll be important what the new coach thinks.”

The midfielder's contract at Bayern expires in the summer of 2017, with Liverpool
