Liverpool target Mario Gotze is being linked with a return to Borussia Dortmund this summer, according to reports
Liverpool have suffered a transfer blow as Mario Gotze weighs up a return to Borussia Dortmund this summer, according to reports in Germany.
The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer transfer window with Liverpool thought to be heading English interest, although Arsenal have emerged as another potential destination for Gotze.
The World Cup winner was thought to be keen on staying put at Bayern Munich, despite club legend Franz Beckenbaeur and Joachim Low urging the forward to complete a move away from the Allianz Arena before the 2016/17 season.
Liverpool signed Sadio Mane in a deal thought to be worth £34m on Tuesday, which could spell the end of Jurgen Klopp’s interest in the Germany forward.
According to Suddeutsche Zeitung, Gotze could be heading back to Dortmund just three years after his controversial switch from Westfalenstadion to Allianz Arena.
The Reds finished in eighth place in the Premier League table last term.
