Monday's media round-up
12th January 2015
After scoring the Swans' equaliser against West Ham last weekend, Bafe Gomis is very much at the centre of today's media round-up.
The French striker's headed effort from a Gylfi Sigurdsson corner helped the Swans claim a share of the spoils against the Hammers.
And Gomis has earned plenty of praise for his performance, with skipper Ashley Williams lauding him in the Daily Star.
"Bafe has been good over the last few weeks and has shown what he is all about," said Williams. "He has had to be very patient. He's got his chance now and it's time to shine. He certainly did that.
"We like Bafe. Look at his work rate, his hold up play and the way he attacks the box.
"He is a very clever player and difficult to play against in training."
Swans boss Garry Monk also hailed the striker, telling the Daily Mail: "He has looked sharp, he has looked bright and you can see there is desire and a work ethic.
"He is my No 1 striker . . . even if Wilfried (Bony) stays, this is Bafe's chance to stake a claim for that shirt and if he does well enough he will keep it."
The South Wales Evening Post, meanwhile, have compiled a list of five talking points from the stalemate at the Liberty.
And with Wilfried Bony being linked with a move to defending Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City, Wales Online have reported the Swans could make a bid for Newcastle United striker Papiss Cisse while the Daily Mail have linked Hoffenheim forward Anthony Modeste with a move to the Liberty.
