The Reds - who finished second in the Premier League last season after a hugely impressive campaign under the tutelage of Brendan Rodgers - boast a formidable attacking lineup, yet they are notably weak in defence and The Daily Express reports that they have entered the fray for Dante with the hope of trumping their biggest rivals.
30-year-old Dante has been with Bayern Munich since 2012, becoming a mainstay in the defence at the Allianz Arena and winning a plethora of silverware in the process.
With two Bundesliga titles, two DFB Pokal crowns and a Champions League winners medal to his name, Dante has become an influential figure at Bayern and as such he has been linked frequently with some of the Premier League's top clubs.
While Liverpool's need for a new centre-back became abundantly clear towards the end of the 2013/14 season, Manchester United are also expected to be on the hunt for defensive reinforcements this summer with the hugely experienced and admired duo of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand both set to depart Old Trafford following the end of their respective contracts.
Chelsea are on the verge of pocketing a huge sum with the imminent sale of Brazilian international David Luiz to free-spending Paris Saint-Germain, although whether or not they intend to invest heavily in a replacement is unclear given the excellent partnership formed by Gary Cahill and John Terry at Stamford Bridge last season.
Given that he is currently first-choice for one of European football's most dominant sides, it seems unlikely that Dante would be content with a place on the substitute's bench.
Dante's experience of Champions League success must appeal heavily to all three of those aforementioned sides, particularly Liverpool who are due to return to the competition next season for the first time since 2010.
