Bavarians refuse to play ball with Anfield boss.
Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez is interested in a move to Liverpool, according to the player’s agent.
Liverpool are believed to made a loan enquiry for the German international as they look to bolster their attacking options and help take some of the burden off Fernando Torres.
Gomez has dropped down the pecking order at Bayern and he is thought to be considering a move as he searches for regular first-team football.
The player’s agent, Uli Ferber, has admitted it would be hard to reject a move to Liverpool.
“When a club like Liverpool inquires, their interest cannot be pushed off the table,” Ferber told Kicker.
However, Bayern’s sporting director, Christian Nerlinger, claims no one will be leaving the German champions before the transfer window closes.
“Bayern Munich are not a superstore for other clubs to come and help themselves to players,” said Nerlinger.
“No player will be leaving and they will certainly not be leaving on loan.” (Sky Sports)
Well that’s not very nice is it. Mario Gomez, a beast of a forward is clearly not happy about having to warm the Allianz Arena bench and his agent makes it clear that interest from Merseyside appeals to the German international but Bayern Munich are not budging.
The 25 year old is now down the pecking order at the Bundesliga champions with the likes of Miroslav Klose, Thomas Muller and even Ivica Olic ahead of him in the queue, but that doesn’t mean he can just swan off and move to the Premier League, oh no.
Roy Hodgson appears to see the former Stuttgart man as a potential foil for Fernando Torres and the Liverpool boss has made it clear he is looking to bring in a striker before the deadline day comes to an end, but he may have to search elsewhere.
It’s a shame because Gomez addition to the English top tier would have given commentators a chance to state that oft used phrase “good feet for a big man”.
