Football: Bayern announce Mario Gomez transfer to Fiorentina

Bayern Munich announced on Monday that striker Mario Gomez will join Italian side Fiorentina.

Champions League winners Bayern said an agreement had been reached "in principle" for the 27-year-old, who found his place in the Bavarian team taken by Mario Manduzkic last season.

The two clubs had been negotiating over the transfer for some time, with Bayern saying last week the deal was dead as the Florentine club were reportedly unwilling to meet the German double winners' 20 million euro ($25.7 million) asking price.
