Besiktas: ‘We want Gomez but…’

Besiktas are “following the situation closely” with Mario Gomez, but face competition for the Fiorentina striker.

The German international spent last season on loan with the Turkish side, but was reluctant to return due to the volatile political situation in the country.

Reports have emerged in recent weeks that Gomez has reconsidered his position, but two European giants also want his signature.

“Our fans would like to have Mario Gomez here again,” Metin Albayrak, Besiktas’ spokesman, told Turkish news agency Dogan.

“We’re interested in the player, we’re following the situation closely but we know the player is negotiations with Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund, so it won’t be easy to bring Gomez to us.”
