Bafetimbi Gomis: Wanted by Newcastle

Lyon chairman and owner Jean-Michel Aulas has confirmed the Ligue 1 club have received three offers for striker Bafetimbi Gomis.

Aulas confirmed yesterday to French television channel Canal+ that Barclays Premier League side Newcastle are one of the clubs interested in the forward, who scored 16 goals in 37 games last season and has just one year to run on his current contract.

However, the Magpies look to have competition in their bid to sign the striker, with Aulas posting a message on Twitter stating three clubs have shown interest in the 27-year-old France international.

Replying to a question if there had been any interest for Gomis, Aulas said: "Yes at least 3".

It comes after Aulas told Canal+ that "there is an interest of Newcastle for Gomis. We wait from them to come to us with an offer".
