West Ham United have been linked with a move for France international Bafetimbi Gomis and Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has revealed several clubs have made offers for the striker.

Gomis was told he could leave the French club in the summer with his contract at the club coming to an end at the end of the season.

The 28-year-old refused to move however and has since forced his way back into the Lyon squad.

West Ham are looking to strengthen their attacking options when the transfer window opens in January and have been linked with a move for Gomis.

Aulas told Canal Plus: "It's not impossible that several clubs have made an offer for Bafe. I'm not following those kinds of dossiers directly, but it's true that a certain number of offers have been made. Just like last year."
