Fiorentina are no closer to landing their top summer transfer target Bayern Munich forward Mario Gomez, according to the Italian club's sporting director Daniele Prade.

The German striker is widely expected to leave the treble winners this summer but any deal for him to move to Serie A is still a long way from being concluded, with Gomez's wage package proving the stumbling block currently.

Prade insists the Serie A side will not break the bank to bring Gomez to the Artemio Franchi.

He told reporters: "Gomez is a player that interests us, but in this moment there aren't any agreements to close the negotiation.

"We must adhere to the economic parameters we have set ourselves, and he will cost a lot.

"But our relationship with Bayern Munich is solid though.

"The player is interested, it's just the deal is not finalised."

The German has scored an incredible 66 goals in 68 league games since joining Bayern four years ago, so the Italian club would be pulling off a real coup if they could tie up a deal for the striker.

Prade also admitted the future of Stefan Jovetic is still up in the air, with the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Juventus expressing an interest in the Montenegrin.

"We are very serene regarding Jovetic's future," added Prade. "The market has only just opened, and at this time, no offers have arrived that we  believe to be satisfactory."
