Swansea striker Bafetimbi Gomis could be on his way out of Swansea to fellow Premier League club Newcastle, according to The Telegraph

Gomis signed from Lyon in the summer for an undisclosed fee but has failed to make his impact since crossing the channel.

Back-up

The Frenchman has spent the season so far playing second fiddle to the in-form Wilfried Bony, meaning that Gomis has only managed to rack up eight appearances since the summer with half of them coming in the domestic cups.

Bony, on the other hand, has been the Swans best player this season and has the joint fifth most goals in the Premier League with nine. With there still being a chance that Bony could be moving on to bigger and better things, Swansea may be reluctant to let his potential replacement leave.

Interest

Crystal Palace are also interested in signing the French forward who has a £7 million buy-out clause in his contract.

But if Newcastle, Palace or any other team are to pay to the £7M buy-out clause then it is unlikely Gomis will want to stay in Wales to play the sidekick.

Propel

Newcastle currently sit one place and two points behind Swansea and could propel themselves above the Swans with added attacking threat.

Palace meanwhile could take a gamble on Gomis in an attempt to stay in the Premier League. The Londoners currently reside in the relegation zone but are just one point behind 17th placed West Brom.
