Currently injured for the next four to six weeks with a twisted knee, Bafétimbi Gomis’ future remains a big question mark at both Swansea and Marseille.
The Swans loanee has been in fine form in the south of France, scoring 14 goals in 26 league appearances for the Ligue 1 side, but as has been explained in the past, the player’s age and wage demands could be problematic in future discussions.
While Marseille are incredibly grateful for his services, Canal+ in France revealed over the weekend, relayed by Le10 Sport, that no decision will be taken before the end of the season regarding a future transfer.
The French media outlet said: “Negotiations are yet to take place. Marseille could look at keeping him, but discussions would have to happen at the end of the season, not before the last two games”.
A slight obstacle for the Ligue 1 side regarding future negotiations is the fact they never included an option to buy Gomis in the loan deal, meaning they would have to start discussions from scratch.
While the 31-year-old only has one year left on his current deal at the Liberty Stadium, his form could lead to Swansea asking for a handsome fee.
If they want to get him off their books, however, that might not be the best move.
