Tottenham have joined Newcastle in the race for Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis, according to reports from The Metro.

The French striker is set to be available for a cut-price deal once the January transfer window opens, with his current contract set to expire at the end of the season.

Lyon look set to let their man leave for far below his true valuation next month, with losing him for free out of the question due to their current financial problems.

Gomis is believed to be available for around £5m, which has alerted new Spurs chief Tim Sherwood.

The man who replaced Andre Villas-Boas is set to be handed significant funds to turn the Londoners’ ailing season around, and is thought to see a new striker as a key addition.

The White Hart Lane club have only notched 19 goals this term – the same tally as relegation battlers Fulham – with big money summer arrival Roberto Soldado having struggled in English football.

Despite welcoming Emmanuel Adebayor back into the first-team, Sherwood wants more firepower, especially with Jermain Defoe said to be edging toward a possible move to the MLS.

Newcastle have been linked with Gomis for some time – and even came close to sealing a deal for his signature over the summer – with some rumours suggesting that a frsh move will be made in the coming weeks.
