Liverpool are preparing a summer bid for Mario Gomez, according to reports.
Sport.co.uk understands that Reds chief Kenny Dalglish is 'planning a summer move' for the Bayern Munich striker, a player the Reds were heavily linked with back in January.
Instead, the Merseysiders signed Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez, spending £55 million on attacking additions after selling Spanish international Fernando Torres for £50 million.
The website claims that Liverpool were rebuffed when they made an informal approach for the player in the opening month of the year, but are again in the market for a striker as the Scot looks to strengthen his forward ranks further.
'King Kenny' is reportedly considering a number of summer transfer moves, with The Metro claiming as many as 22 deals could take place at Anfield this summer as Dalglish looks to make his own mark on Roy Hodgson's old Liverpool side.
A left back, winger, attacking midfielder and striker are all thought to be high on the Liverpool agenda, with 25-year-old Gomez now emerging as the club's top target after a source claimed the club were still interested and have contacted Bayern.
With 24 Bundesliga goals to his name, the German international remains one of the most prolific in Europe and coveted by a number of top clubs across the continent.
Managerial changes are also on the agenda at the Allianz Arena this summer, potentially offering Liverpool the opportunity to pounce for Gomez.
