Liverpool will reportedly use off form and out of favour England international Glen Johnson in an attempt to persuade Bayern Munich to hand them striker Mario Gomez. Roy Hodgson has been trailing the 25 year old German international for a few months now and believes that offering the right back he may convince Louis Van Gaal to sell them the former Stuttgart man.
Way back in late August Gomez had appeared to be keen to leave the Allianz Arena and had stated that Anfield would be a preferred destination but in contrast to last term when the front man was struggling for form and by no means a regular starter, the powerful target man has been in great form, making it very hard to Van Gaal to replace him with the likes of bench warmers Ivica Olic and Miroslav Klose.
Gomez has hit an incredible 19 goals from 23 appearances, including a succession of hat-tricks in both the Bundesliga and Champions League action. Such form may make it distinctly harder for the Merseyside club to snap up the in form striker.
However Bayern Munich are reportedly very concerned with the ineffectiveness of their back four and a long with moves to bring in Everton full back Leighton Baines but appear to also have their sights set on Glen Johnson.
The Bavarian side may struggle to accept such a deal given the recent good form shown by Mario Gomez but that will not stop Liverpool from making such an offer and van Gaal may well consider his options and may look to capture Glen Johnson in a straight cash deal.
