Liverpool target Mario Gotze is put through his paces on Thursday at Germany's training camp

Mario Gotze was all smiles during a training session with his Germany team-mates on Thursday amid ongoing speculation linking him with a move to Liverpool.

The 23-year-old forward has been heavily linked with a £20m switch to the Merseyside outfit in recent weeks after reports that Gotze was unhappy with a lack of first-team football at Bayern Munich.

However, earlier this week, Gotze was speculated to have undergone a change of heart and decided to commit to Bayern ahead of the arrival of new manager Carlo Ancelotti this summer.

Gotze previously worked with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp during his stay at Borussia Dortmund before a controversial £29m switch to Bayern following the Champions League final in 2013.

Here is a selection of photos of Gotze in high spirits during Germany’s training camp on Thursday afternoon.
