EPL Calling?

Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis is reportedly being chased by five Premier League and other clubs across Europe. Gomis’ contract is running out this summer with Lyon and he will be a free agent when the summer transfer window officially opens. He has scored more than 100 goals with the French club in the past five seasons. 

Gomis representative Willie McKay said, "I am speaking to five Premier League clubs about Bafetimbi and it is no surprise there is a lot of interest in him as he is one of the best free agents out there," 

"I am speaking to one very ambitious chairman of an ambitious club and they are very keen to sign him and Bafetimbi will go to a club who proves they really want him.

"The club who are really pushing for him have held a long-term interest in him and made a big bid for him before when he was under contract at Lyon."

3 of the English clubs are reportedly West Ham United , Sunderland and Swansea. An unnamed club which had previously bid for the 28-year-old striker is making the strongest effort to land him, according to McKay.
