Lorient’s Kevin Gameiro would like to move to a Spanish club in the summer.
Kevin Gameiro – Newcastle have already bid for this player
The 24 year-old striker has looked a very good p[layer this season with 22 goals in 36 games for his club, and has been capped 3 times by France.
Spurs manager Harry Redknapp and Sunderland boss Steve Bruce are also interested in the Frenchman, and Newcastle are said to have already made a £8M bid, but maybe Newcastle have already gone back in for the player and increased their offer to £12M?
There are reports today that Newcastle made a £12M offer, but the offer a few weeks was said to be around £8M, so there’s a chance. a small chance that Newcastle have increased their offer.
Gameiro is also getting the attention of Spanish clubs Valencia, Villarreal and Sevilla and, according to the Daily Mail, and there’s a report today that says Kevin will still consider Newcastle, even though he would prefer a move to Spain.
But in that report there’s no evidence at all of him considering Newcastle, so we’re not sure what to make of it, other than it’s another rumor.
However the reports some weeks ago were that Newcastle had already made an offer of around £8M, and Pardew confirmed the club had indeed made several offers for a number of their transfer targets.
It doesn’t look like there’s too much chance of getting the former Strasbourg striker to Tyneside, although he would be a terrific signing for the club.
We’re still hoping.
