Napoli are set to confirm the signing of Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez according to Die Bild.

The German international found himself increasingly marginalised this season at the Allianz Arena. Gomez found himself unable to find a place in the starting eleven ahead of summer signing Mario Mandzukic.

Gomez regularly found himself having to settle for a place on the bench and has looks set to try his luck elsewhere as he searches for first team football.

The striker is reportedly keen to ensure he does not spend another season on the sidelines with next summer’s World Cup in Brazil just around the corner.

His position in the Bayern squad looked even more precarious with the expected arrival of Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski.

The signing of Gomez will further spark speculation regarding the future of Uruguayan forward Edinson Cavani.

Cavani is one of the most highly-sought after players on the planet after another highly successful season for the Serie A side. Napoli will struggle to persuade the majority of observers that Gomez has been side as a potential striker partner for Cavani, rather than as his replacement.

It is thought Gomez has signed for the club in a deal worth close to £18 million.
