Gomez close to agreeing Napoli switch

Napoli are set to confirm the signing of Bayern Munich forward Mario Gomez, according to the Express.

The Italian club, who recently appointed Rafael Benitez as their new manager, were alerted to the Germany international’s availability following reports that he had sold his home.

Gomez has scored 113 times in 174 appearances for Bayern since signing from Stuttgart back in 2009, though he made just nine league starts last season with Mario Mandzukic outgoing manager Jupp Heynckes’ preferred choice to lead the line.

The 27-year-old’s expected arrival could spell the end of Edinson Cavani’s time in Naples, with the Uruguayan international a target for Premier League heavyweights Manchester City and Chelsea.

Benitez is keen to keep hold of the former Palermo man, who scored 29 goals in 34 Serie A appearances last season, though his chances of selling will increase should a new striker arrive at the Stadio San Paolo.
