Everton ready to battle La Liga sides for French star

PSG striker Kevin GameiroEverton are preparing to enter a three-way scrap with Sevilla and Valencia for Paris Saint-Germain striker Kevin Gameiro, according to reports from talkSPORT.

The 25-year-old, a former target of Liverpool, is believed to be surplus to requirements in the French capital, and may be allowed to make a cut-price exit this summer.

With the arrivals of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ezequiel Lavezzi last year, Gameiro has struggled for game time, and could be pushed even further don the pecking order if more big names stars are brought in during the next transfer window.

Despite only making a handful of starts this term, the ex-Lorient hit-man has registered seven goals in all competitions, displaying his lethal edge.

This form has tempted a number of clubs from across Europe, with Everton, Sevilla and Valencia believed to leading the chase.

Toffees boss David Moyes is said to be keen to add some more attacking flair to his squad, and sees Gameiro as the ideal man to challenge the likes of Nikica Jelavic, whilst offering another dimension to the squad.

Liverpool failed with an approach for the forward during January, and it’s unclear as to whether they will revive their interest, particularly with reports that Andy Carroll could return to Anfield.
