Espanyol miss out on Gomez

Quique Sanchez Flores wanted Mario Gomez at Espanyol but is likely to miss out, but Mario Suarez is a possibility.

AS reports Los Periquitos will be frustrated in their hopes of getting the Germany international even though he wants to leave Fiorentina, as the cost would be ‘astronomical’ and the deal complicated.

Marca say however that Mario could make the move, having in January left Fiorentina for Premier League Watford, who were at the time under the command of Sanchez Flores.

He’s a favourite of the recently-appointed Coach, the pair having worked together at Atletico Madrid as well, but the Hornets are unlikely to make the move easy as they paid €4m for Mario just six months ago and his contract runs for another four years.
