Liverpool could face Bayern Munich in a showpiece friendly at the Allianz Arena as part of their pre-season preparations for the 2017-18 campaign.
The ECHO understands that the Reds are in talks about the possibility of playing in the Audi Cup in early August.
If an agreement is reached then Jurgen Klopp will be heading back to his homeland and a stadium where he enjoyed plenty of memorable battles during his reign as Borussia Dortmund boss.
The Audi Cup is a biennial two-day four-team competition which is hosted by Bayern Munich. Liverpool would be guaranteed two fixtures against top opposition.
When it was last held in 2015 Bayern beat Real Madrid in the final with Tottenham winning the third place play-off against AC Milan. Manchester United, Boca Juniors, Barcelona and Manchester City have also previously been involved.
Games have been pencilled in for August 1 and August 2 but organisers say those dates are subject to change until the participants have been confirmed.
The ECHO revealed last month that Klopp plans to take his players away on a training camp to Germany following a shortened tour of the Far East this summer.
The Reds will visit Shanghai and Hong Kong in July to take part in the Premier League’s Asia Trophy. However, unlike 2013 and 2015, a trip to Australia won’t be part of their schedule with Klopp not wanting his players to be burdened with too much travelling.
