Spurs 'closing in' on £12m striker after Redknapp scouting trip

Published Add your comment

Tottenham Hotspur have intensified their interest in striker Kevin Gameiro, according to reports.

The Daily Mirror claims Harry Redknapp made a personal scouting trip to watch the Lorient star on Saturday, with the £12 million-rated forward impressing the Spurs boss despite failing to find the net. It's claimed in the paper that they are closing in on a move.

Kevin Bond was also in attendance as part of the club's party watching the match against Nice, with Tottenham Hotspur's top pair scouring the globe for a summer striker addition.

With Robbie Keane and Roman Pavlyuchenko reportedly set to leave White Hart Lane this summer and Jermain Defoe admitting his unhappiness at a lack of playing time, an addition in the position seems imperative for Spurs in the transfer window.

Newcastle are also thought to be interested, while Valencia, Villarreal and Sevilla are all monitoring the player's progress from Spain. Whilst La Liga is the striker's priority, according to the Daily Mail, a move to England would be considered by the 24-year-old.


With three international caps to his name, the Strasbourg academy product has been attracting interest from top clubs for some time now, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger linked with a move back in January.

However, Tottenham Hotspur now appear to be the more likely of the clubs in north London to bring the player to England, with Redknapp now hot on the heels of the forward.
