Chelsea and Liverpool are ready to fight it out for the signature of Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis in the January transfer window, according to reports in France.
Canal Plus claim that both clubs sent scouts to watch the 27-year-old France international in Sunday night's clash with Paris Saint-Germain.
Reports suggest that the Blues are already in negotiations with Lyon over Gomis, who has been likened to Didier Drogba in style.
Gomis has scored 10 goals in 17 games this season to help the club keep up their challenge at the top of Ligue 1.
Lyon are in financial trouble and sold France No 1 Hugo Lloris to Tottenham in the summer to ease the strain.
Chelsea are known to be in the market for a striker with Fernando Torres under no real pressure for a starting place.
The only other striker in Chelsea's squad, Daniel Sturridge, is expected to leave the club during the next transfer window with Anfield his most likely destination.
But should Liverpool not agree a deal with Chelsea for the young England forward they are likely to ramp up their interest in Gomis.
