Marseille are looking to sign a couple of strikers this summer, after the departure of Michy Batshuayi and the end of Steven Fletcher’s loan move from Sunderland.
The Ligue 1 club are in talks with Tottenham over the possibility of signing Clinton N’Jie, a deal which looks increasingly done, whilst they’re also keen on getting Swansea striker Bafétimbi Gomis on board.
Gomis, however, is on high wages at the Welsh club, and the Ligue 1 side expect Swansea to pay a large part of his wages.
N’Jie is close to signing for Tottenham, whilst Marseille remain interested in Gomis and are waiting for his to come, reports L’Equipe on Thursday.
Gomis has another two years left on his contract at Swansea, and doesn’t seem to be a part of Francesco Guidolin’s plans for next season.
Swansea, quite obviously, wouldn’t want to subsidise a move too much. From Marseille’s perspective, signing both N’Jie and Gomis would help them put out something resembling a team next season.
