West Ham are reportedly lining up an £8m bid for Swansea City striker, Bafetimbi Gomis according to Shoot.
Lacking in first team experiences, Gomis is looking for a move away from the Liberty stadium. Meanwhile, high flying West Ham are continuing their search for strikers to strengthen their attacking forces and they have identified Gomis as a potential target.
With Enner Valencia linked with a move to Chelsea, could it free up a space for Gomis to come into the fold?
A typical striker who fits the West Ham mould; tall, strong and powerful – Gomis could be the ideal replacement should Valencia depart the Hammers for pastures new.
However, Gomis has scored just one goal in 18 top flight appearances for the Swans this term.
Is this a statistic that West Ham really want in their squad?
