Newcastle United know the price it will take to sign Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis.

The Evening Chronicle says Toon must cough up an £8.6m fee to land Gomis – according to reports in France.

The 27-year-old is also understood to have gone AWOL after failing to turn up for a meeting with Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas.

Gomis is believed to have made Newcastle his preferred choice for a move this summer.

But it appears that Lyon will not budge on a fee lower than £8.6m, plus possible add-on fees after milestone appearances for the black-and-whites.
