International

Mario Gomez Linked To Manchester City

Mario Gomez has been linked to Manchester City by the German football media.

The German international striker slipped down the pecking order at Bayern Munich last season, with Mario Mandzukic usurping his place in the starting line-up.

Bayern are expected to sign Borussia Dortmund hot shot Robert Lewandowski, and the new coach of the Treble winners, Pep Guardiola, is well-known to prefer mobile strikers and not traditional centre-forwards in the Gomez mould.

Consequently, Gomez appears to be on borrowed time at the Allianz Arena, and has reportedly professed a preference to move to the English Premier League.

Local newspaper, Stuttgarter Zeitung, claims on Wednesday that both Chelsea and City have expressed an interest in Gomez.

But with Jose Mourinho also reportedly keen on a “different type” of striker, City are in pole position to sign Gomez.

Italian clubs Napoli and Fiorentina are also thought to be clamouring for Gomez’s services, because they too are on the verge of losing their main strikers, Edinson Cavani and Stevan Jovetic.

But reports that Gomez has already agreed a deal to join Napoli are wide of the mark, according to his agent.

“We have never negotiated with this club,” agent Uli Ferber said.
