Arsenal & Liverpool on alert over French hitman
Arsenal & Liverpool transfer news: Kevin Gameiro linked with summer move from PSG
Arsenal and Liverpool have been put on ‘red alert’ over the availability of Kevin Gameiro, according to reports.
TalkSPORT cite speculation in French publication Le Parisien when claiming that the eight-cap French international striker will leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season, starting a potential transfer scrap for the player in the summer.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers attempted to lure the 25-year-old to Anfield in the January transfer window, according to the report, but failed to secure a loan deal.
Instead, the Reds welcomed Daniel Sturridge to Merseyside instead, but remain short in the attacking department with Luis Suarez the only other out-an-out forward at the club.
Arsenal are another side short of attacking options, with Olivier Giroud the only senior central striker currently available to manager Arsene Wenger.
And, that particular Frenchman also made the move to the Emirates Stadium from Ligue 1, a route well travelled by players during Wenger’s 16-year stint with the Gunners.
Gameiro could be the next in a long line of players switching France for Arsenal, but Liverpool are unlikely to let the player join their rivals without a fight.
