Cardiff are in a battle with arch rivals Swansea for Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis but will have to pay as much as £12m to land him.
Malky Mackay is desperate to add to his side over the summer as he prepares for life in the top flight and he would likes to add Gomis to his squad but he faces a battle with Swans boss Michael Laudrup.
Arsenal have previously been linked with Gomis but they are pursuing other targets and will leave Swansea and Cardiff to scrap it out for his signature.
Gomis has been linked with moves to Liverpool and Chelsea as well but the France international appears to be in no rush to move on, although he is ready if an attractive offer were to come in.

"If one day it is time for me to go to a big club in Europe, then I will already have shown how strong I am."
