Newcastle Interest In Mario Gómez


News was reported yesterday on the famed web-site of Newcastle fans www.nufc.com, that we are interested in Stuttgart’s 22 year-old forward Mario Gomez.

Mario Gomez – interest shown from Newcastle

www.nufc.com reported that Newcastle were at the Gottlieb-Daimler Stadium on Saturday evening, as Stuttgart played their last game of the season and got a 2-2 draw at home to Bielefeld.

It turns out that Gomez scored from the penalty spot as Stuttgart drew 2-2 and managed claimed an Intertoto spot. (remember them?).

The Riedlingen, Germany born player, who turns 23 in July, has played for Stuttgart 89 times and scored 39 goals, which is not not a bad return at all in terms of goals.

He signed a five year deal at Stuttgart last summer and scored 28 goals in 32 club appearances this season. Mario stands just under 6’3” tall and has so far played 9 times for Germany and scored 6 goals.

Gómez has recently earned the nickname of “Mr. Zuverlässig” (“Mr. Reliable”), because of his consistent goal-scoring ability, and is expected to be first choice for the German national side in Euro 2008.

From what we can tell, he seems a great emerging player, and we hope the rumors are true that we are indeed interested in the player.

Gómez has both German and Spanish nationality, but has played for all German youth national teams from age 17.

He made his debut for the German national football team against Switzerland on February 7, 2007.

What do you think?

    ‘played for Stuttgart 89 times and scored 389 goals’ you sure that right ed? 😀

    sounds like a fantastic player to fill dukes boots…

    sign turan, arshavin, shorey and cuellar and we could be a decent team to watch out for next season

    There will be alot of specualtion over the next couple weeks as lots of players are now on thier hols so thier agents will start stiring. Nothing will happen until early July with these players.
    Players representing their countrys in the euros willl find their current clubs reluctant to do deals before the tournament. This speculation will go on and on and a few on this forum will grow increasingly impatient (as nufc fans do) but everyone needs to realise agents and journalists put names in the frame to satisfy a number of agendas and the majority of those agendas will not involve the player pulling on a black and white shirt.

    There’s absolutely no way we can get this guy for less than 25 mill pounds,the question is….is MA ready to spend that much on a single player.
    I dont even wanna mention if he shines on Euro 2008 how many top clubs will be after him.
    We do have a chance with Ciprian Marica though,and why we’ve never been linked with Brandao from Shaktar Donetsk.

    Clearly a typo gents, however, his strike rate is very good.

    Unfortunately, I agree with Tom_Toon (and you’d be a foll not to!). We won’t get him.

    sounds like great potential, but we do the same thing every transfer window as we have done for the past 10years! go out looking for loads of midfielders and strikers, WE NEED A DEFENCE! and have done for a long time. why wont nufc managers sort out the biggest problem we have got!!

    Ross. everytime managers have said that they plan on solving our leaky defence they have failed… graham sounes sam alardyce etc… total failures if they had just played attacking football the fact our defence isnt great wouldnt have mattered

    just for you guys having a better picture of him – his goal-scoring record is 39 league goals in 89 games and 52 in 112 total 🙂

    but he’s improving each year. It was 0 in 2, then 0 in 10, 8 in 38, 16 in 30 year before, now 28 in 32.

    I’ve seen him play a few times on Setanta, and he reminds me alot of Big AL. He’s always on the shoulder of the last defender, and he’s a commanding figure up top! I’d love him to come, as he’ll bang in plenty of goals, but maybe Roque Santa Cruz is a more realistic target!

    I guarentee we won’t even come close to signing this player or any other top rated player, if we even make an offer it will likely be below the asking price and the like of SPURS etc will come steaming in with the full amount.
    The MODRIC carry on is a sign of the things to come……

    arsenal want santa cruz, dont think we have a chance on him or gomez although omez would be a quality signing

    is just me or are our scouts looking at strikers with somilar names gomis, gomez, i no im just talking crap now but if we got them both the commentators would get mixed up completely

    lol scottish mag, dont worry, we wont sign both of them. gomez is quite alot like a berbatov siigning. i can see us getting someone like him as he is young. m.ashley wants worlds best youngsters, and if we bid around 32 million euros we will get him, wich works out about 23-24 mill doesnt it?
