Newcastle Have New Reported Rivals For Gomis
Newcastle target Bafetimbi Gomis will have only months left on his contract when the January window opens.
Whether Newcastle will be serious bidders is another matter as it now claimed Lazio are also after the French striker.
Talksport report that wage demands meant Newcastle didn’t go through with a deal for the player but Lazio could be freeing up their wage bill as veteran striker, Miroslav Klose, is rumoured to be heading for a move with no new contract offered as yet to the 35 year old.
Klose’s contract is also up in June and so the story goes, Lazio are looking for Gomis to be his long-term replacement.
Gomis actually got a recall into the Lyon first team against Montpelier in their last league match, not a great day though as they were stuffed 5-1 and the striker was substituted late on.
