Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis, who been linked with Chelsea, Liverpool and most recently Newcastle, will be able to move clubs in January for €3million, according to his agent.

Gomis has been linked with Chelsea and Liverpool for some time, but Newcastle looked set to win the race to sign the 28-year-old back in August only for the move to collapse over wage demands.

The France international recently insisted he will remain with Lyon until the end of the season after failing to secure a summer transfer, but Francesco Di Frisco believes his client could be on the move before his contract expires next summer.

And Di Frisco believes Lyon will sell the forward on the cheap, telling TuttoMercato when asked whether €3m will be the maximum price for Gomis during the January transfer window: "Yes, knowing the Lyon president it should be the maximum in the winter market, with the player being out of contract in June 2014."

Lazio and Roma have also shown interest in Gomis.
