Liverpool summer transfer target Mario Gotze is set to be sold by Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, according to a German football expert Jan Aage Fjortoft.
The Daily Star has reported that, despite claiming earlier in the week that he was looking forward to working with new Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti, Gotze could now well be sold by the German champions, with title rivals Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool keen to add the World Cup winner to their squads for the upcoming campaign.
Previous reports had suggested that a fairy-tale reunion with former Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp at Anfield was off after the 23-year-old had sacked his agent in the build up to his participation in the Euro's with his native country Germany this summer.
However, Bundesliga expert Fjortoft reckons Gotze's Liverpool move could still happen and Bayern want to get rid of the playmaker, after tweeting the following yesterday:
"Gotze has got rid of his agent. Bayern want to get rid of Gotze. Liverpool want him and Dortmund want him. Gotze just wants to play at the Euros."
The talented midfielder joined Bayern Munich from Borussia Dortmund in 2013 for £29m, becoming the most expensive German of all time, only to be beaten by Mesut Ozil's £42m move to North London club Arsenal.
Since then however, the German's playing time has been limited to substitute appearances following inconsistent performances in the red of Bayern, as well as being criticised by club legend Franz Beckenbauer in May 2015 for poor performances and a lack of determination to play.
In the 2015/16 campaign, he made just 14 appearances in the Bundesliga, scoring three goals.
