Former Ascoli, Udinese and Milan striker Oliver Bierhoff has advised Italian clubs to make a bid for German talent Mario Gotze.
The 19-year-old is a rising star of the European game and Bierhoff believes that the Borussia Dortmund teenager would be a shrewd investment.
“I would suggest that Italian clubs look to sign Mario Gotze,” the former international striker commented.
“He’s still a very young player, but he has absolute talent,” he insisted.
“Whoever signs him would be completing a great piece of business. He’s only 19, but he can already be considered as world class.”
Gotze, an attacking midfielder, has played for the full German national side. He’s been paired with moves to Arsenal and Manchester United most recently.
