Gomez set for Viola exit

Mario Gomez appears to be close to leaving Fiorentina, with the striker set to join Turkish side Besiktas.

The German international joined the Viola from Bayern Munich in 2013, but has failed to recapture his Bundesliga form, scoring just seven Serie A goals.

Now Calciomercato reports the Tuscan side have accepted a €6m bid from Besiktas for Gomez, with the player ready to sign a three-year deal worth €5m per season.

In addition, the website carries a picture of what is purported to be Gomez’s contract, indicating the deal is on the verge of completion.
