French newspapers claim Fiorentina have a deal for Olympique Lyonnais forward Bafetimbi Gomis.
The report emerged in Le Progres today, suggesting a transfer to Florence is imminent.
“I will be in Lyon very soon to sort out my future,” said Gomis.
“Lyon does not want to keep me, but I will find a new home like I did when I left St. Etienne.”
Gomis is a 27-year-old centre-forward of Senegalese origin who plays his international football for France.
He managed 16 goals and six assists in 37 Ligue 1 matches this season, catching the eye of Fiorentina.
Gomis is in his fourth season at OL and it is believed the Viola are offering €10m.
Other clubs who have been linked with Gomis include Swansea City, Shakhtar Donetsk and Cardiff City.
However, Italian media maintain Fiorentina are closing in on Mario Gomez of Bayern Munich , as it is unlikely they’d be able to sign both for the same role.
