Bayern Munich are reportedly urging Liverpool to renew their interest in Mario Gomez.
According to the Daily Mail, the German giants are hopeful Liverpool will return for the out of favour striker after initially attempting to sign him in the summer.
Liverpool had allegedly been close to completing a loan deal for the Germany international in August, but Bayern pulled the plug on the switch at the last minute.
Gomez admitted that the move to Liverpool had appealed to him but was convinced to remain at the Allianz Arena.
"I have said that if I leave Bayern I will go abroad,” he told German newspaper Bild.
"Then came this interesting offer from Liverpool. I took the loan offer seriously and discussed it with my family and girlfriend because I just want to play.
"But Bayern gave me the impression that they see a future for me. And therefore a change was not an issue anymore."
The 25-year-old has failed to live up to expectations in Bavaria since joining Bayern from Stuttgart in 2009 for a German record transfer fee of €30 million and could end a miserable 18 months by moving to Anfield in January.
