Mario Gotze provides latest Liverpool transfer update

Bayern and Germany forward Mario Gotze refuses to discuss his future amid reports linking him with Liverpool move

Mario Gotze says he doesn’t want to think about his Bayern Munich future during Euro 2016 amid continued speculation linking the World Cup winner with a summer move to Liverpool.

The 23-year-old has emerged as one of the summer’s big talking points after the Reds were thought to be on the brink of signing the Germany international.

However, Gotze reportedly fired his agent and committed his future to Bayern last week despite being heavily linked with a switch to Anfield.

The Bayern forward played under current Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp during the 48-year-old’s eight-year spell in charge of Borussia Dortmund.

Even Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge urged Gotze to carefully weigh up his future at the Allianz Arena.

But Gotze is adamant that his long-term future at Bayern is not his concern until after this summer’s European championship in France.

“I’ve said everything about this,” Gotze told FourFourTwo.

“Now I’m at the Euros and don’t want to say anything about this.”
