Liverpool are reportedly considering a last minute offer for French international striker Kevin Gameiro.

The Lorient forward is being monitored by a string of European clubs, with Arsenal thought to be favourites to land the player. However, the Metro reports that Liverpool and Spurs could join the race for the player with late moves for the player.

Gunners representatives are thought to have opened preliminary discussions over a £10 million deal, with French reports claiming the club have been in contact with the player's agent.

Roy Hodgson and Harry Redknapp are waiting in the wings though, and both clubs are thought to have scouted Gameiro in case things go wrong over a move to north London.

Gameiro began his career at Strasbourg before moving to current club Lorient in 2008, and last season the striker made a name for himself with 17 Ligue 1 goals. International recognition has followed, with a first Les Bleus cap coming against Belarus in August.

Liverpool have been linked with a handful of striker in recent weeks, with Hodgson keen to find an attacking foil for Fernando Torres in January.

The Anfield outfit have money to spend, with new owners NESV thought to be pledging a transfer war chest in the region of £35 million for the Liverpool boss.

Hodgson has reportedly identified 'five or six' players to bolster his squad in the opening month of 2011, with new Liverpool Director of Football strategy Damien Comolli thought to be keen on French player additions.

Gameiro fits the bill of young, attacking talent, and Liverpool could be ready for a Premier League fight with Arsenal and Spurs in their efforts to land the coveted frontman.
