Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez has expressed his desire to join Liverpool.

The 25-year-old has struggled to settle since moving to Bayern from Stuttgart last summer for a German transfer record fee of 35 million euros.

And, if reports are to be believed, the Germany international has his heart set on a move to Anfield.

"When a club like Liverpool enquires, their interest cannot be pushed off the table," his agent Uli Ferber reportedly told German newspaper Kicker.

Ferber added that his client would "just like to play football again" and Liverpool are supposedly willing to offer the forward an exit route by taking him on a season-long loan spell.

Reds boss Roy Hodgson has made no secret of his intention to bring in another goalscorer before the transfer window closes, although he remains pessimistic of sealing a deal for the right player.

"We've got space to add a player. We'd like another striker, we've said that all along and there's no point me denying it," he said.

"But we still haven't found the right man and time is running out for us.

"If we could get us a striker who could really take the pressure off Fernando Torres from time to time that would be very useful.

"I think it could be the icing on the cake but I'm anxious not to bring in people who I don't think are good enough.

"Just spending money to bring someone in to say we have another player could be a mistake."
