The Newcastle Journal is reporting today, they think Newcatsle are close to signing Kevin Gameiro.
Kevin Gameiro – on his way to England?
And of course this is a problem we always have with the transfer window – it’s really hard to know which reports are accurate and which are just made up.
However, we hope that the local journalists (Mark Douglas in this case) have some inside information from Newcastle, and the Journal is reporting the Tyneside club still have a good chance of signing the French International .
But we wonder about that.
The Journal is saying proof that Newcastle are still in the running happened last night, when Paris Saint Germain’s head of recruitment, Alain Roche, said that Gameiro was “closer to England” than a move anywhere else.
But there is also news today that Arsenal may fancy the player, so it could be a reference to that, since Kevin has said many times before that he wants European football next season, and being French, he will no doubt attract Arsene Wenger.
But you never know – I’ve been wrong many times before, and Newcastle fans will be hoping I’m wrong again on this one – me too. 😀
We should presumably know by this time next week – at the latest.
