Liverpool face stiff competition for the signing of Argentine forward Matias Suarez after Champions League finalists Bayern Munich joined the race to sign him.

According to talkSPORT, the German giants have moved in front of the Reds after Suarez gave his agent the go-ahead to speak to the Bundesliga club.

The Anderlecht forward has been one of the top performers in the Belgian Pro League this season, scoring 11 league goals as his side won the Belgian Pro League title.

Speaking to Argentine TV station, Cadena 3, Suarez said: "Bayern Munich are the most concrete team for now. My agents are dealing with it at the moment. I'm open to a move to Germany."

The 24-year-old, who can play up front or out wide, joined the Belgian champions in 2008 from Argentine second division team Belgrano. Since Romelu Lukaku's departure for Chelsea last summer, Suarez has become the main Anderlecht frontman, and his impressive form saw him pick up the Belgian League Player of the Year award.

Liverpool have been linked with the star striker all season, but with the focus currently on the club's search for a new manager, Bayern could take the opportunity to steal in and clinch a deal. Suarez has repeatedly stated he wants to chance to test himself in one of Europe's top leagues, but it now appears the Bundesliga - rather than the Premier League - is his more likely destination.

"I want to move on," said Suarez. "I want to move to a bigger club in a better league."
