VfL Wolfsburg sign Mario Gómez from Fiorentina

Updated: August 17, 2016

German Bundesliga side VfL Wolfsburg have acquired the services of Fiorentina striker Mario Gómez on a permanent basis.

Gómez was on loan this past season at Beşiktaş where he achieved a cult hero status after leading the Black Eagles to their first league title since 2009, becoming the Süper Lig top goalscorer with 26 goals.

As part of the deal with Fiorentina, Beşiktaş are entitled to 50% of the transfer rights to Mario Gómez. Meaning they will receive half of the currently undisclosed fee (which is believe to be 7 million euros according to reports in Germany).
