Lyon star Gomis humbled yet calm regarding Chelsea, Liverpool interest

Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis admits he is flattered by interest from the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool.

The 27-year old Frenchman is again being linked with a January move to the Premier League but he is not getting carried away with the attention he is receiving.

"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," he told Canal+.

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

Gomis, who made the move to Lyon from Saint-Etienne in 2009, has scored 14 goals in all competitions so far this campaign.
