The German international score 19 goals in all competitions as the Bavarian giants claimed a historic treble.

But with new Bayern manager Pep Guardiola officially unveiled on Monday, rumours have begun to rise that Gomez could be on his way out of the Allianz Arena.

And the 27-year-old increased the speculation by casting an eye towards the Serie A.   

“Would I play in Italy? I’d be very happy to do that, I’d like it a lot,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
