Arsenal In Pole Position To Get Kevin Gameiro?


It seems that Arsenal are moving in to try to sign Newcastle target Kevin Gameiro.

Kevin Gameiro – Arsenal in pole position now?

That makes some sense for Arsenal, because Kevin is a good striker, and Arsenal need somebody other than Robin van Persie, to put the ball in the net next season.

And he’s French of course, which you have to be to sign for Arsene Wenger – don’t you? 😀

But it’s looking more and more like Kevin Gameiro will not be arriving on Tyneside, as he prefers to play his football in Spain and also wants to play in Europe next season.

Arsenal could quickly be in in pole position if they match Newcastle’s bid of £10M, which has already been accepted by his French club Lorient.

The news yesterday was that Valencia were interested in the player,  but bid only £6M, and surely Lorient will want some club to match Newcastle’s fee for their top striker, or at least close to it.

You cannot say Newcastle have not splashed some money around in this transfer window so far this summer, but have only secured 25 year-old skilled French midfielder Yohan Cabaye so far, and he should be signing for Newcastle next week.

The local Newcastle papers are saying Newcastle will try to get Gameiro or Gervinho, but not both.

We think Gervinho must now be the more likely acquisition, and we’re just hoping he will choose Newcastle next week, following  the International games this weekend.

Of course the Ivory Coast International winger has also said he wants to join a club competing in Europe next season.

    I think he will get his wish, move to Spain, and that will be the last we hear of him till he is angling for a move back? Could be the next Guivarch, of course, I have been wrong in the past.

    I don’t understand how Arsenal, who never really spend big, are linked with all of big name targets that we are…

    And Liverpool are linked with everyone! They can’t buy every footballer on the planet!

    Surely Arsenal dont need to sell to buy.

    Everyone always goes on every summer about how they’ve got a £50m war chest but Wenger refuses to spend big.

    The only thing i know in the last few hours which MAY be the case of Gervinho coming here, is because Liverpool have pulled out from the race of signing Gervinho.

    Why did they do that? I don’t know. Is it because Gervinho has decided to come here? I don’t know. Not going to believe anything till its official.

    See I’d heard that the new stadium was built under a really good financial plan and that Arsenal are one of the most profitable clubs in the prem.

    I dont know for sure like.

    According to bbc sport fixtures ivory coast don’t have an international match this week so gervinho might well be sorting out his transfer to wherever he goes.

    We sent Coozy on an undercover mission with no way of contacting us. This mission is off top priority!. Coozy knew it was a life or death mission to discover the secrets behind Stainrod and Charney meeting up.

    toonruz and ilovetoon8788….where do you get your info from? Myself as a long suffering Toon fan always expect to be let down and will no doubt be let down again when Gervinho signs for someone else.

    It’s more likely to be Lee Charnley the club secretary with Stainrod which could indicate a transfer is on the cards

    Demba Ba is a really injury prone player I hope we stay well clear of. Dyer anyone!? No more injury prones please. He won’t play the internationals this weekend due to a groin strain now, never mind his dodgy knee.
