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.

Gomis will remain a Lyon player after the club's attempt to sell him this summer produced no result, ESPN FC reports.

Gomis was expected and intended to be sold by Lyon due to the fact that the striker's contract is set to expire after this season.

The player will remain at Lyon, where he should once again lead the line as the team's central striker. Gomis registered 16 goals and four assists last season.
