Bafetimbi Gomis Agent Pushing Move

8 years ago

The agent of Bafetimbi Gomis has spoken out ahead of the January transfer window.

Francesco Di Frisco has ruled out an Italian move for the French striker and instead has revealed (claimed?) that he is in discussions with a number of English clubs.

Gomis’ agent has also claimed that he believes the supposed value for money will make it easy for clubs such as Newcastle to afford him.

This is what Di Frisco has had to say;

“Lazio and Roma keen on him (Gomis)? I have recently talked to both Tare and Sabatini (Sporting Directors at the respective clubs) and they’ve told me Bafe isn’t amongst their main targets.

“Instead he is near to moving to the Premier League and we are talking to several clubs.

“At a cost of two and a half million euros (around £2m) means he is very affordable to English clubs.”

Of course if you were cynical you might be thinking that Gomis has been hawked around Italy with no joy and now his agent is casting his net around the Premier League because there will always be somebody prepared to snap up a deal for a striker whose contract is due to run out.

Will it appeal to king of the bargain hunters, Mike Ashley?
