We reported Newcastleâ€™s interest in Germanyâ€™s Mario Gomez yesterday, and the player is very likely to move from Stuttgart in the summer.
Mario Gomez – interested in Premier League
It seems that Mario is quite ambitious but there are lots of clubs after the player so it may be difficult for Newcastle to capture a player who can certainly score goals.
While saying all the right things about being happy in Germany, GÃ³mez has done little to hide the fact he will be leaving the club, or even to dampen interest from England.
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, and Gomez scored a second half penalty.
Mario was yesterday quoted as saying:.
â€œIf a major offer comes in, I have agreed with my club that I can have talks,â€
â€œI consider myself capable of playing in the big European leagues.â€
â€œI watch the Premier League and it is one of the best in the world. I know Chelsea scouts have watched matches.â€
It seems that Stuttgart are ready to let their 6’3″ striker leave, and they are reportedly already trying to find a replacement.
We wouldnâ€™t be at all surprised of Gomez ends up in England, and the only advantage we have for Gomez – is that he does not want to join a club where he will spend a lot of time on the bench.
He could start for Newcastle, and you never know â€“ one of these times we may get lucky.
