Gomis scored his first goal of the Premier League season during Swansea's 2-1 victory over Arsenal on Sunday.

Gomis only sees limited time on the pitch and has a small window of opportunity to make his presence felt. Despite the goal Sunday, fellow forward Wilfried Bony spends more time on the pitch and consequentially has more upside than Gomis.

Gomis is scheduled for a medical exam ahead of a move to Swansea City, The Guardian reports.

Gomis, who is out of contract with Lyon, was linked to the Premier League club last season, but the two sides could not come to an agreement and Swansea signed Wilfried Bony instead. Bony had an excellent season in Wales, plus a decent World Cup, and many believe he'll find a new home this summer, which would give Gomis plenty of playing time opportunity next season.

Despite currently placing second on the French side with seven goals in 14 starts, Gomis has expressed his intention to leave on a free transfer at season's end, with rivals Marseille a top contender for his services.
