Liverpool legend legend Jan Molby has urged Jurgen Klopp to bring Bayern Munich midfielder Mario Gotze to Anfield.

Gotze has struggled to nail down a place in Bayern Munich's first team this season and is reportedly looking for a way out of the club this summer.

The 23-year-old has started only five Bundesliga matches so far this campaign - in 2014-15 he appeared in 32.

Liverpool have been linked with a cut-price £20million deal for Gotze, and Molby believes the German World Cup winner would be a huge addition to the squad.

"Three years ago when he left Borussia Dortmund, there wasn’t a club in the world that wouldn’t have taken Mario Gotze," he told the Liverpool Echo.

"Things haven’t progressed quite as quickly as we expected since – although he has scored a World Cup final winner in that time! - but if Liverpool can get him in the summer, they’ll be acquiring a top class talent.

"It can be hard at Bayern Munich. It’s a winning machine, like Liverpool in the 1970s and 80s, and if you don’t do it for a few games then they’ll bring in someone else. Gotze’s had injuries and he’s had dips in form, and he’s lost his way slightly.

"But Klopp has had him firing before. At Dortmund he was irresistible. You can say it would be a gamble if Liverpool were to get him, but he’s 23, and has massive ability.

"You can never have too many good attacking players in your squad. That’s what wins you games."
