Swansea face a battle with Shakhtar Donetsk to sign Bafetimbi Gomis but the Lyon striker's personal terms could be a problem.
The French international only has one year left to run on his current contract and the Ligue 1 club are believed to be keen to sell this summer, as they don't want to lose him for free next year.
Lyon rated Gomis at around £8million and Swansea appear ready to do a deal, although personal terms are likely to prove a stumbling block with Shakhtar Donetsk waiting to pounce.
The Ukrainians have a bigger budget at their disposal and are understood to have agreed a fee for the player, but Gomis is believed to be more keen on a switch to England.
Reports in France have claimed that the 27-year-old striker has already turned down moves to Russia and Turkey during the current transfer window.
Swans chairman Huw Jenkins has also held talks with Lyon officials and if they can hammer out personal terms with the player then they will be in the box seat to do a deal.
