Liverpool are interested in making a summer move for Bayern Munich's Mario Gotze, Sky sources understand.
The 23-year-old midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool having played for Reds boss Jurgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund.
Gotze, who scored the winning goal for Germany in the 2014 World Cup final, is unsettled at Bayern after failing to hold down a regular place under outgoing manager Pep Guardiola, making just one start since October.
It is unclear what Gotze's Bayern future holds with Carlo Ancelotti due to replace Guardiola when he leaves for Manchester City in the summer.
He has one year remaining on his contract and Klopp is known to be a huge admirer of the player having given him his Dortmund debut as an 18-year-old in 2010.
Gotze went on to make 99 appearances for Dortmund - scoring 22 goals - before completing a £31.5m move to Bayern in 2013.
Although he was a regular starter in his first two seasons at Bayern, scoring 27 goals in that period, he has been a more peripheral figure since.
Newspaper reports claim Klopp is confident of signing Gotze for a fee of around £20m due to the limited time left on his current deal.
