Gomez and Giovinco for Galatasaray?

Turkish media claim Cesare Prandelli wants Mario Gomez or Sebastian Giovinco at Galatasaray.

The former Italy Coach is only just beginning his reign in Istanbul and is eager to bring some Serie A talent with him.

Already previously linked with Daniel Pablo Osvaldo, Turkish site Fotomac claim Prandelli is targeting Fiorentina centre-forward Gomez.

His debut Serie A season was extremely unlucky, as a series of knee injuries meant he only made a handful of appearances and missed out on the World Cup.

It is suggested Gomez is seen as the ideal replacement for Didier Drogba.

Meanwhile, Tuttosport insist today that Prandelli is making a bid for Juventus benchwarmer Giovinco.

The Atomic Ant has been frustrated for two years on the sidelines of the Bianconeri squad and the arrival of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid will only make it more difficult for him to find space.

A move to Galatasaray could be beneficial for his career and get him back into the Italy squad along with regular Champions League participation.
