Gomez has been linked with a move to the Florence-based club for some time, while Napoli are also reportedly interested in the Germany international.

Uli Ferber, Gomez’s agent, has now confirmed the interest and hinted a deal could be struck in the near future.

"Gomez is going towards Fiorentina, but there are no contracts signed yet," Ferber was quoted as saying in Sport1.

Bayern sports director Matthias Sammer, meanwhile, confirmed the club "had not yet received a bid which they are satisfied with" for Gomez.

The transfer is reportedly worth €10 million, with media in Italy reporting discussions between Bayern and Fiorentina could conclude as early as this Thursday.
