Mario Gomez is expected to step up his recovery in training from today, with an aim at returning to action by Week 35.
The Germany international has been out of action since suffering a second less severe knee injury of the season against Napoli at the end of March.
On from receiving initial treatment in Germany, the striker has yesterday returned to the peninsula ahead of stepping up his recovery process.
It is expected that Gomez will step up his training sessions with La Viola with a specific return date of Week 35, which would mark a month in total on the sidelines.
