The France international has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League this summer, with Welsh rivals Swansea City and Cardiff City said to be monitoring his situation.
Lyon are prepared to offload the 27-year-old as they attempt to free up funds for further additions.
Gomis has, however, made it clear that he will not be dictated to and forced to move against his wishes.
He said: "I will choose where I play next season.
"It sounds like Lyon have already made their choice, but I haven't."
Gomis was responding to comments from Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas in which he appeared to suggest that an agreement was close to being reached with Ukrainian outfit Shakhtar.
He told Aujourd'hui: "We have received an offer from Shakhtar Donetsk. It is a fantastic offer and we could agree with them."
