Liverpool eyeing Mario Gomez

Brendan Rodgers is desperate to add another striker to his squad this summer and is reportedly keen on bringing the German international to Anfield

Reports claim that The Reds are happy to do business with Italian Serie A side Fiorentina in a bid to lure Mario Gomez away from Stadio Artemio Franchi. The Merseyside giants are willing to offer La Viola Mario Balotelli as part of the deal but it remains to be seen if the Italians would be interested in having a player who has struggled for form and consistency for the last two years.

Balotelli was not included in the preseason tour to Thailand and it is clear that Rodgers wants to get rid of the former AC Milan striker.

And now, the manager is eyeing a move for Gomez who despite many injury concerns, is a proven goalscorer and could help the team be more lethal in front of goal next season.
