Olympique Lyonnais confirms that it has reached agreement with AS Saint Etienne on terms for the transfer of French international Bafetimbi Gomis for ¤13 million, plus up to another ¤2 million in performance-related payments.
After undergoing the customary medical today, Bafetimbi Gomis signed a five-year contract with the club.
Olympique Lyonnais is delighted with the arrival of this young French international, who participated in the 2008 Euro championship and was Ligue 1's third top scorer in 2007-08, trailing only Karim Benzema and Mahamadou Niang.
This addition follows the arrival of the Argentinian international Lisandro Lopez, Brazilian midfielder Michel Bastos, the top passer in last year's championship, and Aly Cissokho, one of the revelations of last season's Champions League, and gives Olympique Lyonnais a squad ready to compete at the highest level, in line with the sporting policy of general manager Claude Puel and the president's sporting advisor Bernard Lacombe.
Bafetimbi Gomis will be presented to the media at a press conference at 18.00 CET on 31 Friday 2009 at OLTV's studios.
