Chelsea target Mario Gomez was the subject of a bid from Liverpool, reports in Germany have claimed.
Gomez has been in quite sensational scoring form for Bayern Munich this season; netting eight times in three games, including a four goal haul against Freiburg.
And, according to Bild, Liverpool offered €30 million for the German striker in April, as Kenny Dalglish made plans for the summer transfer window.
Liverpool had been linked with the 26-year-old during the Anfield tenure of Roy Hodgson and, it would appear, reignited their interest following a fine run of form from Gomez.
The former Stuttgart frontman had scored 32 times for club and country before the end of April, and finished the campaign with 40 strikes in 44 appearances.
Chelsea, meanwhile, have been linked with Gomez in the past few days as Andre Villas-Boas allegedly considers signing a replacement for Fernando Torres in January.
The Spanish striker has yet to justify his £50 million price-tag since joining Chelsea from Liverpool nine months ago.
