Swansea will resist offers for Gomis reports TalkSport

Bafetimbi Gomis v Brest

The French striker has been linked with a move away from the Liberty but looks set to stay for now.

Swansea will not enter talks to sell striker Bafetimbi Gomis according to Talksport.

The France international has been linked with a move to both Arsenal and Newcastle in recent weeks after dropping down the pecking order at the Liberty Stadium.

However, following the sale of Wilfried Bony to Manchester City, Swansea manager Gary Monk is keen to make Gomis his number one striker for the rest of the season at least. One person who thinks he can fill the void left by the Ivorian is coach Alan Curtis.

“We’re always looking at players but it’s difficult,” the former Wales international told Drivetime.

Bafetimbi Gomis has an opportunity now, he’s been very patient.”

The sale of Bony to City to £28 million has left the Swans with a huge hole in their forward line, but with a significant sum available to replace him.

However, reports have suggested that Gary Monk will wait till the summer to replace the striker so as to avoid overpaying in the often-inflated January transfer window, and that is a stance that Curtis is also taking.

“During the summer we’ll start the search again for someone to replace Bony,” he said.
