Mario Gomez is on the verge of leaving Bayern Munich, although Napoli is not his likely destination, according to the player's agent Uli Ferber

Gomez, who found himself as second-choice striker for much of the season after missing the first three months due to injury, still has a contract with Bayern until 2016.

The former Stuttgart striker is considering his future with Bayern, though, and talks with his agent and the Bavarian club towards the end of the week should clarify where he will be playing next season.

"All will be cleared in the next three or four days," said Ferber. "Gomez will opt for the best solution."

One of those potential solutions appears to be a move to the Premier League with Germany's Stuttgarter Zeitung suggesting Chelsea and Manchester City are running the rule over the Germany striker.

Napoli and Serie A rivals Fiorentina, who have also been touted as likely takers, are not regarded as serious candidates, however.

"If I had been talking with all of the clubs mentioned, then I would have been spending my days travelling," said Ferber to Sport1 television.

"We have never entered into any negotiations with Napoli

"We will make our position clear at the end of the week."

Bayern signed Gomez from Stuttgart in 2009 for 35 million euros and they would be expecting to recoup more than half of that amount, should he leave the club with three years still to run on his contract.

Despite playing second fiddle to Mario Mandzukic, Gomez still chipped in with 19 goals in 32 appearances this season, taking his total to 75 goals in 115 games for Bayern.

He scored 63 times in 121 games for Stuttgart, underlining his potency.
