Swapping Lyon for Swansea City on a free transfer back in 2014, Bafétimbi Gomis was meant to help the club with some goals.

While he did manage to find the back of the net 17 times in 71 appearances for the now Championship side, the France international never hit the same heights in Wales as he did elsewhere in his career.

Take his current spell at Al-Hilal Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, where he has scored 82 goals in 107 games, or even his record at Galatasaray, where he holds a record of 32 in 42 matches.

Everywhere he’s gone, Gomis has been a prolific striker, apart from Liberty Stadium, which is why it isn’t a surprise to see him look back on that three years spell being contracted to Swansea as one of the lower points in his career.

Speaking to So Foot, the forward was asked why he decided to swap Turkey for Saudi Arabia in 2018.

He replied: “Galatasaray were faced with economic issues. Have had a great season with the record of goals scored by a foreigner and as champions, I’d reached my goal. It was the first time I imposed myself outside of France following the failure at Swansea. At that age, you’re greedy for challenges”.
