Germany coach Joachim Low has advised Mario Gotze to talk to new Bayern Munich coach Carlo Ancelotti before leaving for Liverpool.
Gotze has started only five Bundesliga games this season, with Bayern coach Pep Guardiola leaving him on the bench even after he had returned from a hamstring injury.
He has been strongly linked with Liverpool since the day his former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp took over at Liverpool.
“I had a talk with him last night about his situation at Bayern Munich and we decided he would play against Italy in Munich next week,” said Low.
“We had great talks about his situation and there will of course be a new coach in Bayern next season so the first thing he should do is talk to the new coach.”
