Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp wants to secure a deal to sign Germany international Mario Gotze this week.
This has been reported by The Sun, who claim that the Bayern Munich playmaker could join the Reds in a £20 million transfer.
Gotze, 23, has endured a tricky period in the Bundesliga recently - he has failed to establish himself as a key man under the Guidance of Pep Guardiola - and it's now expected that he will depart the club sooner rather than later.

Liverpool have long been linked with the player's services and it appears that the club could be about to get the deal over the line.
Reds chief Klopp has a history with Gotze, of course, having managed him at Borussia Dortmund. The pair have a fine relationship and there's every chance that Klopp will be able to help Gotze rediscover his best form.
The technically gifted star would represent a fine coup for Liverpool, who will be without European football for the 2016/17 campaign.
It's clear for all to see, however, that they will be determined to stamp their mark on the Premier League title race next season. With Gotze a possible signing, things are most definitely looking up on Merseyside.
If Klopp can get his transfer dealings right over the coming months, then there's no reason why Liverpool won't be able to climb the Premier League table.
