Newcastle have been linked with French International striker Kevin Gameiro today.
Kevin Gameiro – looks a decent player
This is not the first time Newcastle have been linked with this player as there was a report on the Tutto Mercato Web site last November that the player was interesting Newcastle, but also Arsenal and Tottenham.
The FC Lorient player is also interesting other European clubs like Monaco, Hamburg, Schalke 04 and Benfica.
The 23 year-old has so far played a couple of times for the full France National side, and for the French Youth sides.
Last August, Gameiro was called up to the full France squad by manager Laurent Blanc for their UEFA Euro 2012 qualification matches against Belarus and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Kevin made his senior team debut in the match against Belarus appearing as a substitute in the second half, and then last month Gameiro earned his second full cap in the 1–0 victory over Brazil.
Like a number of players Newcastle are linked with at the moment, Gameiro can play on either wing or up front as a striker, or even as a withdrawn striker.
The strike started his career with Strasbourg in 2005, and then moved to Lorient in 2008, after Strasbourg were relegated to Ligue 2.
Kevin played 68 times with 17 goals for Strasbourg, and has so far played 105 times with 49 goals for Lorient, which is a decent goal scoring record, albeit in the French League.
This lad looks a decent enough player, and we’ll continue to build up a dossier of players Newcastle are linked with over the summer.
You never know, we may even sign one of them, and then we’ll have all the information all ready on the player.
