Comments (7) SWANSEA City are tonight close to completing the signing of Bafetimbi Gomis.The French international frontman has been in Swansea for talks today and is thought to have undergone a medical.Gomis is likely to sign a three-year deal at the Liberty, although as yet he has not put pen to paper.Landing the 28-year-old, who is a free agent after his Lyon contract expired, would be a major coup for Swansea given that a host of clubs are thought to have been keen on his services.Swansea have so far declined to comment on links with Gomis, but this picture circulating on Twitter appears to show the striker getting into a car with chairman Huw Jenkins.The picture looks to have been taken in front of Swansea's Marriott Hotel.

    The key to this "Free" signing is if he is in addition to Bony the Beast as we don't wish to lose him. Together they could prove a formidable striking force and give us fantastic fire power. Add to this hopefully Emnes coming as well it will give us something different for opposing defences to cope with.

    Apparently,Newcastle were prepared to pay Lyon £8,000,000.for Gomis, just last August,but the deal fell through. They must be seething to see him go for nothing.
