Fiorentina on Gomez and Jovetic

Fiorentina general manager Sandro Mencucci confirms interest in Mario Gomez and that Juventus are still tracking Stevan Jovetic.

“It is beyond doubt that Gomez is one of the players who interests us,” Mencucci told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I can also tell you that Fiorentina are one of the teams he is keeping in mind should be change jersey this summer.”

The German international is set to leave Bayern Munich in order to seek more playing time, but has also been linked with Napoli and several Premier League sides.

Mencucci also commented on Jovetic, who could still join Juventus despite the fact they signed Carlos Tevez for €9m plus a potential further €6m in performance-related bonuses.

“Jovetic to Juventus? Money has no scent, so in financial terms we do not rule any club out. Admittedly the Della Valle family wouldn’t be very happy if he went there and perhaps would have something to say.”

The Viola have a very tense rapport with old rivals Juventus and would prefer not to do business with the Turin giants.

Jovetic has a €30m buy-out clause in his contract and has also been linked with Arsenal.

“I met with our directors on Thursday and emerged very confident a great Fiorentina will emerge. You just need to give us a little time, as the options we are working on are very important.”
