Newcastle ready to up interest in Lyon ace

Newcastle could be set to up their interest in Lyon’s Bafetimbi Gomis amid rumours that Inter Milan are watching the striker, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The Magpies were heavily linked with the powerful forward over the summer, but failed to secure a deal after being in talks with his representatives.

Despite this, they have since remained keen on Gomis, with rumours of a move this month having circulated for some time.

But, they may have to push ahead their plans for a deal with Inter circling.

The Serie A side have made the forward one of their top targets for the coming week, and are keen to push through a deal.

Gomis is set to be a free agent in the summer, and Newcastle are rumoured to be now looking into waiting until then to snap him up for free.

However, the Milan giants are plotting a cut-price swoop in the coming days.

Gomis has netted an impressive seven goals in 16 outings for Lyon this term, and is an outsider for Les Bleus’ World Cup squad.
