Bayern Munich are interested in Liverpool striker Fernando Torres.

TZ says Bayern fancy their chances of landing Torres should he become available in 2011.

Torres will be reluctant to join a Premier League rival, while a move to Real Madrid will also be discounted because of his Atletico ties.

With Barcelona buying David Villa in the summer, that road also appears blocked.

Bayern, however, are waiting in the wings and have the star power to convince Torres to make the move to Germany. It's claimed Bayern believe an offer of £32 million would be enough to convince Liverpool to sell the off-form striker.
