Etihad Stadium side target German striker.
Man City are reportedly readying a bid for Bayern Munich forward Mario Gomez according to TuttoMercato.

Roberto Mancini may feel the need to strengthen his front-line after seeing Mario Balotelli move to AC Milan and his side’s Premier League title hopes fade out of view.
There has been speculation that Bosnian Edin Dzeko will also leave the Etihad Stadium and it does seem plausible that Bayern Munich may listen to offers for German international Mario Gomez.
The 27 year old scored 80 goals in 97 appearances for the Allianz Arena side over the past two seasons but an injury to the prolific marksman saw the Bavarian side opt to sign Mario Mandzukic and the Croatian has been in excellent form, consigning Gomez to the bench ever since he recovered to full fitness.
The speculation that Pep Guardiola expects to sign Robert Lewandowski from Borussia Dortmund would seemingly be a further nail in Gomez’s Bayern Munich coffin and therefore a move to Man City may well tempt the former Stuttgart forward.
Whilst Sergio Aguero has seen something of a return to last season’s goal-scoring form of late, Carlos Tevez has failed to score in his last eight Premier League appearances.
