Juventus are preparing a bid for Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez.

Corriere dello Sport says Juve want to bring the Germany international centre-forward to Turin this summer.

Gomez almost joined Liverpool in August and attracted enquiries from the Reds and Tottenham during the January transfer window.

Bayern want at least €18 million for the striker, who has revived his career in Munich this season.

Juve hope to drive down the cash component by including one of Amauri or Vincenzo Iaquinta in their offer.
