Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez will not be joining Liverpool, the sporting director of the German club has said.

Speculation has been mounting that the Germany marksman would be leaving Munich for Merseyside after his agent revealed that he would favour a move to Anfield.

Uli Ferber told newspaper Kicker: "When a club like Liverpool inquires, their interest cannot be pushed off the table."

The 25-year-old was signed by Bayern last summer from Stuttgart for a Bundesliga transfer record of 35 million euros, but he has failed to live up expectation; scoring ten goals in 31 appearances during his first season at the Allianz Arena.

Roy Hodgson has made no secret of his desire to add another striker to his ranks in order to take the goalscoring burden away from Fernando Torres, and Liverpool were allegedly set to offer Gomez an exit route by taking him on a season-long loan.

However, Bayern sporting director Christian Nerlinger has quashed rumours linking the former German Footballer of the Year with a move away from Die Roten.

"Bayern Munich are not a superstore for other clubs to come and help themselves to players," he said.

"No player will be leaving and they will certainly not be leaving on loan."
