Former Liverpool striker target Ivica Olic wants to leave Bayern Munich in search of more regular football reports

The 32-year-old Croatian forward has made only five substitute appearances for the Bundesliga giants this term, since returning from a long-term spell on the sidelines.

Olic was linked with a move to Anfield as recently as March, with German publication Bild reporting that Reds boss Kenny Dalglish was keen on a move for the Bayern star.

Asked if he would stay at the Allianz Arena, Olic told Munich's Tz newspaper: "No. I want to play more; I want to have fun for another two years.

"I am not the type of player who comes on towards the end of the game. That is not enough for me."

Liverpool have been linked with a handful of strikers since the summer transfer window, with 'King Kenny' tipped to strengthen his attacking options in January.

Despite big-money moves for Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez last January, and the deadline day signing of Craig Bellamy in the summer, the Reds still lack depth, and as a result have been forced to use their first-choice pairing in Carling Cup competition this year.

Having lost his place in Bayern's starting line-up to Bundesliga top goalscorer Mario Gomez, coach Jupp Heynckes has used Olic as a winger during his appearances from the bench - something that has further angered the player, and caused him to throw his hat into the ring for a potential move to Liverpool.

"I am a centre-forward," Olic added. "On the wing is not really my position. But the coach sees me as a winger."
