Spurs to make £7million offer for out-of-favour forward.
Tottenham have made a surprise bid of £7million for Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez, according to the Metro.
The German international has established himself as one of the world’s most clinical goal-scorers in recent years, though has found himself down the pecking order at the Allianz Arena this season.
His lack of first-team football has not stopped him finding the back of the net, with 19 goals in all competitions a very decent record, and he has been reportedly been eyed up by the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Napoli.
Bayern will be understandably keen to paid well for a player who scored 41 goals in 2011/12, but Spurs have made an opening offer of just £7million as they believe he can be prised away on the cheap.
The White Hart Lane club are known to be on the lookout for new strikers this summer, following some poor form from current strike pair Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe, as well as to show enough ambition to keep in-demand star Gareth Bale at the club.
They have been linked strongly with Barcelona’s David Villa, but Gomez would be an excellent acquisition if they can pull it off as he is still playing at the peak of his game.
