Swansea are stepping up their interest in Bafetimbi Gomis and are ready to pay £8million to bring the striker to the Liberty Stadium.
Swans boss Michael Laudrup has made finding a top quality striker his number one priority of the summer and it looks as though Gomis is now his top target.
Reports have claimed that chairman Huw Jenkins was in France last weekend talking transfers and would have spoken to Lyon about a possible move for Gomis.
It will be a real coup for the Swans if they could lure the France international to the Liberty Stadium and Jenkins will have to be willing to smash the club's transfer record to land him.
Cardiff are also keen but it has been suggested that Swansea are leading the race to sign the player, who will be out of contract at the end of next season.
Laudrup has already missed out on the signings of Iago Aspas, Arouna Kone and Leo Baptistao and will be hoping for more luck with Gomis.
