Mario Gotze is still undecided about his future at Bayern Munich. The World Cup-winning midfielder has been a peripheral figure at the Allianz Arena this season and has been strongly linked with a move away from the club.

Gotze is a reported target for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who coached the talented German at Borussia Dortmund, and the 23-year-old admits he does not know where his future lies. The attacking midfielder will enter the final 12 months of his Bayern contract this summer, and there have previously been suggestions from the player and his club that he will move on in the coming months.

On when he will make a decision about his future, the reported Liverpool target told Bild: "I don't have a concrete schedule. I can't say whether a decision about my future will be made before or after the European Championships. I know that for instance [Dortmund captain] Mats Hummels has said he wants clarity before the tournament, but Toni Kroos [in 2014] only made his decision [to join Real Madrid from Bayern] after the World Cup. Everything's open."

The German international also revealed he had not yet spoken to Bayern or their incoming manager Carlo Ancelotti amid Liverpool's reported interest in his services. "Right now, there are no talks," Gotze said. "Not with the club and not with Carlo Ancelotti."

Gotze has scored 33 goals and provided 22 assists since he moved to Bayern in 2012. But having suffered a series of injury problems in recent years, a move to Liverpool is seen by some critics as a way to get his career back on track.
