Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news that Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mario Gotze reportedly wants to move to Anfield. 

Bundesliga expert Lee Price has revealed in The Express that Gotze is ready to leave Germany and join up with Jurgen Klopp once again.

The midfielder wants to test himself in England, and has twice considered Liverpool in the past, only to remain in the Bundesliga. However, he has found himself out of favour at Dortmund, and may now be ready to leave.

Price believes that many teams would be interested in signing Gotze, but the player desperately wants to work under Klopp once again, as Klopp is the manager who gave him his big break at Dortmund.

Liverpool fans appear to have mixed reactions to the news. Whilst some want the rumours to be true, many fans seem to hope that the rumours remain just that.

During his first spell at Dortmund, Gotze was viewed as one of the hottest prospects in world football. His breakout year came in the 2010-11 season, in which he scored eight goals and registered 16 assists. The next few years were equally as successful for both Gotze and Dortmund.

Klopp, Gotze and Dortmund shot to prominence during Gotze's three years at the club. A young, talented Dortmund side managed to win trophies and shock European giants in the Champions League and Gotze, like so many promising young Germans, joined Bayern Munich in 2013, becoming the most expensive German player ever at the time of the deal.

He scored the goal which won the World Cup for Germany in 2014, but struggled with form and fitness at Bayern, and eventually returned to Dortmund in 2016. However, he was diagnosed with myopathy a few months later, which was said to explain the issues with his fitness and injuries.

Gotze's talent was clear from a young age, but fitness and health issues have proven to be his downfall. Whether he would be able to adapt to life in the Premier League is unknown, but Jurgen Klopp clearly knows what it takes to get the best out of Gotze.
