Swansea City player Bafetimbi Gomis has had a good start to his loan spell at Marseille. The 31-year-old has already managed 7 goals this season, and has even been appointed as the captain by new boss Rudi Garcia.

However, Marseille don’t have the option to sign him permanently next summer, and that has obviously led to speculation about his future in the French media.

According to a latest report on French website Le 10 Sport, Gomis has become an important member in the Marseille squad, and the Ligue 1 club could retain his services beyond next summer.

Le 10 Sport say Gomis wouldn’t cost much should Marseille want to sign him, with just one year left on his contract at Swansea after next summer.

Earlier, Marseille’s new President, Jacques-Henri Eyraud, also confirmed his desire to keep Gomis at the club, but pointed out that depends on the player.

Staying at Marseille could be a very good opportunity for Gomis, who is entering the final phase of his career, and could enjoy a prominent role at the Ligue 1 club.
