It’s all happening at Swansea at the moment.

Swansea City pulled off a nice and quiet piece of business yesterday, capturing the signature of Bafetimbi Gomis from Lyon.

The acquisition of Gomis now seems to be as a replacement for much-loved Spanish forward Michu, as Spanish radio station COPE are reporting on Saturday that Michu is on the verge of joining Napoli.

In a deal which has quietly crept up from nowhere, COPE report that Michu, who missed massive chunks of last season with injury, has passed a medical to join Rafa Benitez’s Napoli this summer.

It now seems certain that the 28-year-old will move to Naples, although COPE also detail that Atletico Madrid are interested in the forward too.

Michu has scored 20 goals for Swansea in 52 games.
