VIDEO: £30 million Chelsea target scores six minute hat-trick

Chelsea target Mario Gomez showed just why he is wanted by the club in a sensational performance last night.

Mario Gomez is a seriously tempting target for Chelsea this summer, if they are unable to land Falcao or Edinson Cavani.

He would cost little over half the price for either of the South American pair, and is up for a move with Bayern ready to listen to offers.

His agent Uli Furber said this week: 'Mario is not happy about his situation.'

The 27-year-old was on the bench for Bayern last night in their Pokal clash at home to Wolfsburg, but did not let that deter him from making an impact.

It was the 77th minute of the game when Gomez was introduced, with Bayern cruising at 3-1 up thanks to goals from Mandzukic, Robben, and Shaqiri.

10 minutes later the scoreline was 6-1, thanks to Gomez.

The striker hit a six minute hat-trick, with goals in the 80th, 83rd, and 85th minute, to turn a comfortable win into a thrashing, to take Jupp Heynckes side through to the final, keeping hopes of a treble alive.

Would Gomez be a good signing for Chelsea? What do you think?
