Le Tallec, along with Florent Sinama-Pongolle, have just ended the season with relegated Division One side Le Havre, and are now eager to join Gerard Houllier's side.
The Reds duo have been waiting for some time to move to Anfield, and although Houllier has reservations about their lack of experience, Le Tallec is desperate to begin next season with Liverpool.
"I want to make a name for myself at Liverpool next season. I really want that," Le Tallec told France Football.
"I think I have the means. I don't want to play at Le Havre any more, not in Division Two.
"During two years I have gained experience here. I learnt a lot, I played a lot, I have pace.
"I just had a long talk with coach Jean-Francois Domergue, who was very enriching.
"He knows what I want. I am proud to belong to a mythical club like Liverpool. I didn't miss a Liverpool match on TV this season.
"I already love Liverpool. I want to start the next league season with them, to get my chance.
"Of course, up-front there are only great players, they are all internationals. But I must not be afraid, on the contrary."
Houllier said that Le Havre's relegation would lead to the pair heading to Anfield, but reports have suggested that the duo could be used to lure Djibril Cisse away from Auxerre, with Guy Roux allowed to have them on loan in return for allowing Cisse to join Liverpool.
Le Tallec was unaware of any Auxerre deal, but did say that the prospect of the pair staying in France on loan is still alive.
"If Gerard Houllier thinks it is better to be loaned again, it is obvious I will accept his decision. But in that case, I would like to be in a good Le Championnat team."
