Liverpool still want Mario Gotze
Gotze was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool last summer before he completed a return to Borussia Dortmund from Bayern Munich.
The 24-year-old midfielder rose to prominence during his first spell at Dortmund under Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
And according to transfer outlet TMW, Klopp is keen to renew his interest in the Germany international this summer.
Klopp is reportedly lining up Gotze as a potential replacement for Philippe Coutinho, who continues to be linked with a move to Barcelona.

While Klopp last week urged Coutinho to stay put, suggesting he has the potential to become a club legend.
The Red boss said: "Stay here and they will end up building a statue in your honour.
"Go somewhere else, to Barcelona, to Bayern Munich, to Real Madrid, and you will be just another player. Here you can be something more."
