Manchester City are keeping tabs on Mario Gomez's situation at Bayern Munich.

The Germany international, 27, faces being squeezed out of Bayern in the summer as incoming coach Pep Guardiola seeks a new centre-forward signing.

Munich media sources say City boss Roberto Mancini is interested in Suarez as a potential replacement for Edin Dzeko.

Centre-forward Suarez famously came close to signing for Liverpool three years ago and remains in high regard at Anfield.
