Forward undergoes medical to complete move from Bayern Munich

Soccer: Germany's Gomez lands at Fiorentina

Florence, July 15 - Germany forward Mario Gomez landed in Florence on Monday to do a medical with Fiorentina and complete his move from Bayern Munich. Signing a world-class player like Gomez is a major coup for Fiorentina, who are not among the big Serie A sides that regularly contend for the Italian title and will take part in the Europa League next season after finishing fourth last term. Gomez won a Champions League-Bundesliga-German Cup treble with Bayern in the campaign just ended. The 28-year-old scored 113 goals in all competitions after joining Bayern in 2009. But he wanted to move on after being forced to play second fiddle last season to new signing from Wolfsburg, Croatia's Mario Mandzukic. The German-Spanish centre-forward would have slipped farther down the pecking order under new coach Pep Guardiola because of Polish striker Robert Lewandowski's move from beaten Champions finalist Borussia Dortmund. "Today is a beautiful day, one for me to remember," Gomez said after arriving in Italy. "I'm very happy to be here".
