Chelsea and Liverpool are both thought to be weighing up moves for the French international when the transfer window reopens in January.

The two Premier League sides are keen to bolster their attacking options and they are thought to have watched Gomis in action on several occasions this season.

Gomis has admitted he would be interested in a move to England, but he is not getting carried away by the rumours.

"I'm happy, but if it is for my interest, and the three parties are OK and I can progress, then yes. The interest is flattering," Gomis told Canal+

"These are big names [Liverpool and Chelsea]. But I do not pollute my mind with the idea of a departure. Anything can go very quickly in football."
