Liverpool could face trouble in their pursuit of Bayern Munich midfielder Mario Gotze with Borussia Dortmund now interested in a move, according to Kicker.

Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for Gotze for several months, with an exit from Bayern looking likely.

Reports have suggested he will struggle to become a first-team regular at the club, with incoming manager Carlo Ancelotti having warned him as much.

Liverpool have looked the most likely to secure his signature, with no other competitors having been liked to the German star.

However that has now changed, with Kicker reporting that former club Borussia Dortmund have changed their stance and are now interested in a move.

In fact, according to their report Dortmund have made him a priority signing in this summer’s transfer window.

The decision is now firmly in Gotze’s court, with him having to decide between a return to his former club or a reunion with former manager Jurgen Klopp.

It seems unlikely that he will make a quick decision though, with it more probable that he will wait until after Euro 2016 before choosing his next destination.
