Liverpool loan target Mario Gomez is keen on a move to England, and would relish the challenge of testing himself in the Barclays Premier League reveals German website TZ.

The 26-year-old Bayern Munich striker is looking to engineer a move away from the Bundesliga when the transfer window reopens in January, and according to the website that move could be to Merseyside.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish was known to be in the market for a forward to boost his attacking options at Anfield this summer, and rushed through a deadline day deal for Craig Bellamy - a move that saw the Welshman return to his former club four years after his Liverpool exile under former manager Rafael Benitez.

After failing in their attempts to bring Gomez in on loan last year, Liverpool may wish to renew their interest in January depending on how their current crop of strikers perform in the first half of the season.


Luis Suarez has become an instant fans' favourite on Merseyside, after a series of impressive displays following his £24million move from Ajax last January.

But £35million record signing Andy Carroll has struggled to hit top gear since moving to Anfield from Newcastle United in the same window. After coming into criticism recently regarding his off-the-field antics, all eyes will be on Liverpool's No.9 to see if he can deliver.

If however, Carroll fails to rediscover his goal-scoring form, the Reds may turn to Gomez who hit 39 goals for Bayern in all competitions last season, and the German international has started the 2011-12 campaign in similar fashion with four league goals already to his name this term.
