Lyon confirm Gomis departure

Bafetimbi Gomis’ agent may have denied any interest from Fiorentina earlier today, but it looks as if the striker is leaving Lyon.

The French forward has been linked with a move away from Stade Gerland during this transfer window, with the Viola said to be keen on brining the 27-year-old to Tuscany.

The player’s representative rubbished those reports on Monday morning, but a statement from his club this afternoon has confirmed that the goalscorer was not at the team’s pre-season camp in Tignes.

“Due to the position of the player,” a statement read. “The club have asked him to stay in Lyon to continue preparations and be available for negotiations.”

Gomis has also been linked with a transfer to Tottenham, Shakhtar Donetskh and Monaco.
