Gomez claims £35.6m Chelsea bid

Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez has revealed Chelsea had an offer of £35.6 million (€42 million) rejected at the end of the January transfer window - but says he would not have been interested in moving to the Premier League club.

Chelsea eventually signed Fernando Torres from Liverpool in a British record transfer worth £50 million, with the report in Bild claiming the offer for Germany international Gomez was around £35.6 million.

"I only found out about the offer after the club had turned it down," he revealed. "But it wouldn't have mattered anyway. I am already at a top club and I am playing where I always wanted to."

Gomez, 25, has finally found top form with Bayern this season, topping the Bundesliga scoring charts with 16 goals in 14 starts ahead of Papiss Demba Cisse of SC Freiburg and Eintracht Frankfurt's Theofanis Gekas. He moved to the Bavarian giants in 2009 in a €30 million deal from Vfb Stuttgart, scoring 10 goals in his debut season.

Reports claim that Chelsea made the bid on the evening before the window closed, which may suggest they were looking for an insurance policy should the Torres deal not go through. It has also been suggested that Liverpool made their own enquiry to Bayern at the same time as they looked to replace Torres.
