The Portuguese international has been linked with a move to England, with Liverpool thought to be keen on signing him.
Liverpool boss Gerard Houllier had revealed earlier in the season he would be interested in signing the striker with Gomes claiming he would be keen on a move to Anfield.
Robbie Fowler's departure from Liverpool to Leeds has made The Reds` need for a new striker greater and they have been linked with a renewed bid for the former Benfica ace.
The 25-year-old could be sold in a bid to ease the Florence club's financial problems, but he insists he will staying at the Artemio Franchi until the club tell him otherwise.
"I don't like England as a country from the point of view of the weather," said Gomes. "It is too cold.
"I think I will stay in Florence until June unless the club ask me to leave because they have received a great offer for me."
Milan have also been linked with a move for Gomes as they search for a replacement for long-term injury victim Filippo Inzaghi and his former club Benfica are also thought to be in the chase for his signature.
