Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis says he is unaffected by interest from Chelsea and Liverpool.

The Senegal forward has scored 14 goals for the joint Ligue 1 leaders this season and has in recent weeks been linked with a move to the Premier League.

But Gomis has dismissed the speculation linking him with Chelsea and Liverpool and says the interest is flattering.

Gomis has scored 14 goals this season.

"I'm happy, but if it is for my interest, and the three parties are okay and I can progress, then yes," he said. "The interest is flattering.

"These are big names [Liverpool and Chelsea]. But I do not pollute my mind with the idea of a departure. Anything can go very quickly in football."

"I have heard it, the president said I will get transferred or will renew my contract before the end of the January transfer window," he added.

Lyon are currently level on points with Paris Saint Germain and Marseille at the top of Ligue 1 having played 18 games and will be among the seeded teams for the draw of the last-32 of the Europa League on Thursday.

Both Chelsea and Liverpool are seeking additional attacking resources in the January transfer window, with both sides currently stalling over their No.1 targets.

Liverpool are understood to be interested in Klaas Jan Huntelaar, while Chelsea are set to revive their interest in Atletico Madrid forward Radamel Falcao.

Brendan Rodgers is set to make a raft of alterations in the New Year after missing out on a series of high profile targets during the summer window and with the likes of Fabio Borini currently a long-term absentee through injury.

Meanwhile, interim manager Rafa Benitez says Blues fans should expect a surprise in the transfer window, however much of the power over new personal is likely to be taken out of the Spaniard's hands.

The club have struggled to yield the best from Fernando Torres, despite the forward's 12 goals in all competitions this season, however it appears Benitez will persist with the Spain international and instead concentrate on strengthening the midfield area, with Oriol Romeu out injured until the end of the season.
