Alan Curtis claims Swansea will resist all offers for striker Bafetimbi Gomis – following Wilfried Bony’s move to Manchester City.The France forward has been linked with a move to Arsenal and Newcastle in the January transfer window, after dropping down the pecking order at the Liberty Stadium.But Bony’s departure leaves a gaping hole in the Swans side and coach Curtis believes the 29-year-old is the perfect man to step in.“We’re always looking at players but it’s difficult,” the former Wales international told Drivetime. “Bafetimbi Gomis has an opportunity now, he’s been very patient.“Gomis was one of our targets just before we signed Wilfried Bony, believe it or not. He was actually ahead of Wilfried on our list. We had a £10million offer turned down 18 months ago.“Wilfried was not an afterthought but Bafetimbi was higher on our list of priorities.“The club will resist all offers they receive [for him]. During the summer we’ll start the search again for someone to replace Bony.”
