Gomis agent denies Viola interest

The agent of Bafetimbi Gomis has claimed that Fiorentina are not interested in his client, despite reports of the contrary.

French newspaper Le Progres insisted at the weekend that the Lyon striker would be on his way to the Viola.

But the 27-year-old's representative has insisted that those stories are false. He has however, named some of the teams interested in the goalscorer.

“Bafetimbi is a player that everyone knows is at the forefront of French and European football,” Francesco Di Frisco told FirenzeViola.

“Next year his contract will expire, so therefore his price is around €10m. In Italy we have spoken with several teams, but there has been nothing with Fiorentina.

“Shakhtar, Tottenham and Monaco are all following him.

“For now, no Italian team has come up with an offer.”
