Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly ready to rival Tottenham and Arsenal for Kevin Gameiro.

The Lorient striker has been in fine form this season, scoring 19 times in 35 Ligue 1 appearances and is seemingly likely to leave the Stade du Moustoir during the summer.

Arsenal had been heavily linked with the 24-year-old for a number of months, before Tottenham appeared to enter the race for his signature.

Now, according to talkSPORT, PSG are plotting to steal a march on Arsenal and Spurs by making a formal bid for the £13 million-rated France international.

French newspaper Le Parisien claims that Lorient will sell Gameiro to the highest bidder during the transfer window, with reports suggesting he could leave on a free transfer next year.


The acquisition of a new striker is thought to a top priority for both Arsenal and Tottenham before the new season, with both clubs looking to make marked improvements on their 2010/11 campaigns.

The lure of Champions League football may make Arsenal are more attractive option than Spurs for Gameiro, while his former Lorient teammate Laurent Koscielny could also have a say when it comes to his final destination.
