Pardew confirms interest in Gomis

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has expressed his desire to sign Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis as he looks to boost the club's attacking options.

The 51-year-old recently revealed plans to sign a new forward in order to "take the game to other teams" and said the club is searching "worldwide" for extra firepower.

The specualtion carries added spice following Papiss Cisse's fallout with the Magpies over his refusal to wear a shirt sponsored by loan company Wonga, and the Senegal striker has not travelled to Portugal with his team-mates for the club's pre-season tour.

France international Gomis is the latest name to be linked with a move to St James' Park and Pardew is hoping to bring the former Saint-Etienne man across the Channel.

"We have expressed an interest in Gomis," Pardew told the Times. "We think that he's a player who has great potential. He's a French international who's played at the highest level for his club."

The 27-year-old has attratcted interest from numerous Premier League clubs, with Aston Villa and Swansea reported to be keeping a close eye on his situation.

The news comes after Gomis, who wants to leave Lyon, was told earlier this month he is no longer part of the club's plans.
