Arsenal close in on Kevin Gameiro as Spurs and Liverpool express interest
Arsenal are closing in on the signing of French international striker Kevin Gameiro, although the north Londoners could be forced to fend off last-minute offers from both Spurs and Liverpool.
According to reports in France, Gameiro’s agent has been allowed to conduct preliminary talks with Gunners officials over the possibility of completing a £10million deal for the striker in January.
However, Reds manager Roy Hodgson and Spurs boss Harry Redknapp are known to be tracking the forward’s availability in case negotiations between Arsenal and Lorient do not go smoothly. (The Metro)
Clearly Arsenal and Lorient have a healthy relationship following the clinching of centre back Laurent Koscielny by the north London club in January and Arsene Wenger is keen on nabbing another talented prospect from the Ligue 1 minnows.
Clearly Gameiro is not a household name but he is a player on the way up the 23 year old had a great season last term, netting 19 goals in all competitions. This term has seen the former Strasbourg man get his first senior international cap.
Some may wonder why Wenger is looking to bring in more attacking options but given the constant injury concerns over Robin Van Persie and the reported bust up between Wenger and Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner, perhaps another option up front would be wise.
