Chelsea Manager Rafael Benitez Seduced By Lyon Goal-Getter Bafetimbi Gomis

Thursday, 27th December, 2012

Chelsea could make a move for Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis to replace Daniel Sturridge, with Blues boss Rafael Benitez having been extremely impressed with the 27-year-old.

According to French daily Le Progres, Benitez watched the hat-trick Gomis scored for Lyon during their 4-1 win away at Marseille earlier this season and was hugely impressed.

Now Gomis is a possible option for the Blues in next month’s transfer window; Chelsea have had him scouted, along with Liverpool.

Chelsea will be looking for fresh faces to add to the squad and already look set to sell Daniel Sturridge to Liverpool in a deal which should net them around £12M.

Persuading Lyon to sell and Gomis to move to Stamford Bridge could require some work however, if indeed Benitez does decide the Frenchman is the man Chelsea should move for in the winter window.

Les Gones’ president Jean-Michel Aulas recently backtracked on previous comments that the club would look to sell up to two players next month to balance the books; with Lyon in the middle of a title fight with Paris Saint-Germain, such a move does not look wise.

And Gomis himself has insisted he would like to see out the season at the Stade Gerland, rather than jump ship midway through the campaign.

Gomis has been on fire in Ligue 1 this season, hitting the back of the net eleven times in 19 games. The striker has accounted for a third of Lyon’s Ligue 1 goals in the current campaign.
