French striker Gomis signs three-year deal with Galatasaray

IANS logoIANS 30-06-2017

The 31-year-old Gomis has fared below par since joining English Premier League side Swansea City in 2014 following a five-year stint in Lyon where he scored a career-best 20 league goals in the 2016-17 season, reports Xinhua news agency.

Swansea City could receive a transfer fee of 2.5 million euros ($2.85 million). According to the Galatasaray club on Thursday, Gomis' annual salary reached 3.35 million euros ($3.8 million), excluding bonuses from the team's success in the league and European competitions.

"I'm ready to help Galatasaray win titles," said Gomis during the signing.

According to French sports daily L'Equipe, although Marseille showed great interest in making Gomis' deal permanent, they could not match the salary offered by the Turkish side.

Galatasaray were expected to have a spending spree on the off-season market after finishing fourth in the league last season.

Gomis will undoubtedly be a huge boost for their attacking line as their German forward Lukas Podolski has made a move to Japan's league and Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder seems to have an uncertain future.

They will also recruit the Moroccan midfielder Younes Belhanda from Dynamo Kyiv.
