The agent of Bafetimbi Gomis has revealed that Arsenal, Newcastle United and Crystal Palace have approached him over the availability of the Swansea City striker.

The France international joined the Welsh club after leaving Lyon at the end of the last season on a free transfer. He has seen his first team appearances being limited, having started in just five league matches this campaign.

Lack of playing time at Swansea has seen him being linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium, with Arsenal and Crystal Palace believed to be keen on signing him in the January transfer window.

Gomis' agent Francesco Di Frisco confirmed Borussia Dortmund and Schalke, along with the English clubs are interested in his services, but are yet to make any concrete offers.

"Schalke and Borussia Dortmund came to information for several days. So have Newcastle, Crystal Palace and now Arsenal. But these are only approaches, there is nothing concrete," Di Frisco said, as quoted by Le 10 Sport.

"The transfer window lasts until 2 February. For now, Gomis remains calm and stay focused on the field and his club Swansea. His position has not changed since the start of Bony, he still wants to leave."

The Swansea manager preferred Wilfried Bony ahead of Gomis to lead the Swans attack. However, the Ivory Coast international completed the switch to Manchester City earlier this week.

With Bony's exit, Gomis will be the first choice striker for Garry Monk during the team selection. However, the 29-year-old's agent claims Bony's departure will not change his client's decision to leave his current employers.

"Gomis actually not a silver story. What he wants is to find a club that will allow him to find playing time necessary for it to find continuity in performance and regain the level that was his last few seasons at Lyon," Gomis' agent said.

"That's why we plan to meet with the management of the club in the coming days to make a firm decision on the case," Di Frisco concluded.
