Mario Gomez 'evaluating offers'

Mario Gomez received “more than one offer and we’re evaluating them with the player,” said Fiorentina after Liverpool and Besiktas interest.

The German striker only turned 30 last week, but has a wealth of experience and injury problems behind him.

“He is a great champion and can continue to improve,” said Viola director general Andrea Rogg.

“We received more than one offer for Gomez and we’re evaluating them with the player. The Turkish option? Yes, that’s in there too.

“Mario has a certain price-tag that is tied to his career, so we must find the right balance. If not, it means we’ll have a champion in our squad who we will continue to work with.”

There were reports over the weekend that Gomez could move to Liverpool in an exchange of loans with Mario Balotelli.

However, Fiorentina seem more intent on cashing in for the centre-forward.

Besiktas have shown an interest in signing Gomez outright for around €8m, though Galatasaray are also alternatives.
