Liverpool plot move for Kevin Gameiro

Next Story

Liverpool reportedly hope to take advantage of Edinson Cavani's arrival at the Parc des Princes by making a move for Paris Saint-Germain striker Kevin Gameiro.

Cavani sealed his high-profile transfer from Napoli to PSG on Tuesday and, according to the Daily Star, Liverpool are ready to bid for Gameiro, who now finds himself well down the pecking order with the Ligue 1 champions.

Liverpool have already recruited Iago Aspas from Celta Vigo to reinforce their goalscoring ranks, but the uncertain future of Luis Suarez is reported to have led the Reds to Gameiro.

The 26-year-old France international was a target for Liverpool prior to his transfer to PSG in 2011, and Gameiro could now secure a move to Anfield to provide Brendan Rodgers with further options up front.

Gameiro has scored 23 goals in 78 appearances for PSG since joining the club from Lorient, but looks unlikely to feature much next season after Cavani arrived to play alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Ibrahimovic found the net 35 times during his maiden season in Paris and will surely retain his place under new manager Laurent Blanc, while Cavani arrives at the club with a fearsome goalscoring record of his own.

The Uruguay international recorded 104 goals in 138 games during his three seasons with Napoli, including 38 strikes in all competitions last season.
