Amidst rumours Liverpool are close to agreeing a £5 million deal to sign Mainz goalkeeper Loris Karius, fans are only interested in speculation linking one man with a move to Anfield - Mario Gotze.

The Germany international has been told to find a new club this summer by incoming Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti, with Jurgen Klopp interested in reuniting on Merseyside.

Liverpool face considerable competition from the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea to sign him, but what’s certain is that all those currently playing under Klopp want Gotze to join them.

Roberto Firmino is one of such individuals, with the Brazilian recently insisting Liverpool would be a good fit for the attacking midfielder.

Another Red has waded in on such speculation, though - Emre Can.

In an interview with German outlet Bild, he said: “At Bayern he is lacking a bit of confidence which is understandable.

“A move to Liverpool would be good for Mario.

“Jurgen Klopp has shown this season how much trust he puts in young players. German players are popular in the Premier League.

“The fans would be very happy to see more German players in the Premier League.”

Liverpool fans can dream, with the thought of Gotze lining up alongside Firmino, Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge a mouth-watering one.

The 23-year-old’s vast experience - let alone his immense ability - would be a welcome addition at Anfield, having won the Bundesliga five times throughout his career and scoring the winning goal for Germany in the 2014 World Cup final.

His versatility would also bolster Liverpool’s options, given he can play anywhere across the attacking line - even upfront.

The numbers suggest Gotze would be a big hit too; in 14 league appearances this season, he has scored three and assisted four.

Not a bad return for someone so out of favour at the Allianz Arena.

Firmino recognises this and has urged the German to join him in the Premier League.

“I know Gotze well from my time in Germany, when I played with Hoffenheim and against Borussia Dortmund and Bayern,” he began.

“He has incredible attacking qualities. He would fit in well with us, and he will surely help us with his class also.”

Liverpool have reportedly made headway into signing Gotze by submitting a €25 million bid.

This is thought to be below Bayern’s valuation of the attacking midfielder, though, suggesting the Reds will have to stump up somewhere in the region of €35 million to have any hope of signing him.
