Report: Sunderland keen on Swansea duo Bafetimbi Gomis and Andre Ayew

Sunderland Gates

Sunderland are reportedly eyeing the Swansea duo in a busy summer.

Sunderland are keen on a deal for Swansea striker Bafetimbi Gomis, according to the Daily Star, after already being linked to Andre Ayew.

Sunderland have relied heavily on striker Jermain Defoe this past season, as he scored the goals that kept them in the Premier League.

Elsewhere though, the goals were hard to come by as the likes of Fabio Borini struggled to chip in sufficiently.

That has made adding another striker to the squad key for manager Sam Allardyce in the summer transfer window.

They already made a move for Andre Ayew in the January transfer window, and will return with a move for him this summer.

He is not the only Swansea City striker they will target this summer though, with the Daily Star reporting they are also keen on a move for Bafetimbi Gomis.

The Frenchman faded this season after a bright start to the year, but that has not detracted the Black Cats, who think he could provide competition to Jermain Defoe.

Whether Francesco Guidolin will be willing to sell two of his first team stars however, remains to be seen.
