Lazio have joined the race with Newcastle United, Swansea City and Cardiff City to sign French international, Bafetimbi Gomis, reports the Daily Express.

The 28-year-old is out of contract with his current club, Olympique Lyon, at the end of the season.

Gomis has attracted plenty of attention across Europe with a list of clubs hoping to sign the player in January.

This has put Cardiff City and Swansea City on high alert, however, it was Alan Pardew at Newcastle United who came closest to signing him in the summer.

The forward's wage demands were too high for the Premier League club, but they are expected to come back with a second approach for the player.

Lazio have decided to join the race after they announced that is unlikely that they will be able to keep German striker, Miroslav Klose.

The 35 year-old looks set to return to Germany, with old club Kaiserslauten the most likely destination.

Gomis joined the seven-time Ligue 1 champions in 2009 from St Etienne. However they have struggled in recent years, only winning the Coupe de France once during Gomis' time with the club. 

On a personal level, Gomis has had a fairly successful spell with the French side, scoring 50 times and finding the net at least ten times in the past seven seasons.
