Lys Gomis (born 6 October 1989) is an Italian-born Senegalese footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Serie B side Trapani, on loan from Torino.

Club career[edit]

He began his career with the Torino youth system, playing in all the youth teams before graduating to the primavera (under-19 side). He was subsequently loaned to Lega Pro side SPAL without collecting any appearances. In 2010–11, he was loaned to Casale in Lega Pro, managing 14 appearances. He remained at Torino throughout the 2011–12 Serie B campaign as third-choice goalkeeper.[2]

In the 2012–13 season, he once again remained at Torino, but as second-choice to Jean-François Gillet. In January 2013 he was loaned to Ascoli in Serie B, where he collected 6 appearances.[3] In 2013–14 Serie A he remained at Torino due to the suspension of Gillet in the pre-season.[4] However, he remained second-choice after the arrival of Daniele Padelli. Gomis made his debut in Serie A on 30 November 2013, replacing an injured Padelli at halftime against Genoa (1–1).

International career[edit]

Gomis was called up by Senegal for a friendly match against Mali on 5 March 2014.[5]

Personal life[edit]

Gomis is son of Senegalese immigrants in Italy residing in Cuneo and formally obtained Italian citizenship on 11 July 2012.[6] He has two younger brothers that are goalkeepers and under contract to Torino; Alfred Gomis currently playing for Crotone in Serie B; and Maurice Gomis who is part of Torino youth team.[7][8]
