Liverpool interested in signing Luca Toni on a free transfer?

Liverpool are the latest club to express interest in Bayern Munich outcast Luca Toni, according to The Sun.

The player has made no secret of his desire to leave the Bavarians after not featuring regularly for coach Louis van Gaal. The former Fiorentina striker hopes to work his way back into the Italy national team mix before the World Cup in South Africa next year.

The relationship between Toni and the club has become so strained, that president Uli Hoeness is willing to let the 32-year-old leave for free.

Liverpool have endured a difficult start to the season, as they were eliminated from the Champions League and sit in seventh place in the domestic table.

With the Reds in financial difficulty, Toni being available will allow them to add more firepower without breaking the bank. Fernando Torres’ frequent injury troubles have left the outfit short of strikers on occasion.

Other clubs rumoured to be tracking the 2006 World Cup winning hitman are Roma, Dynamo Kiev, Inter, and Benfica.
