Sky Sports sources understand that Swansea City have agreed a four-year deal to sign striker Bafetimbi Gomis on a free transfer.
The 28-year-old, who was released by Lyon at the end of last season, is set to become Garry Monk’s second addition of the summer after already bringing in goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski from Arsenal.
A host of Premier League clubs, including Newcastle United, West Ham and Sunderland, were reported to be keen on the striker, who hit 17 goals in all competitions for Lyon last season.
Gomis has 12 France caps to his name and spent five years at the Stade de Gerland after arriving from St Etienne in 2009.
His future had been the subject of much speculation for the past year, with Swansea and Newcastle both said to be keen on him last summer, but he was free to leave Lyon after the expiry of his contract.
