The Magpies have been leading the chase for the Lorient striker and have already agreed a deal after bidding €12million. But while Lorient are happy for him to go, Gameiro is not so keen and has never hidden his desire to move to Spain after Valencia emerged as suitors. Now Paris Saint-Germain have also joined the race for his signature, and the forward has now admitted he would be more than happy with a switch to the capital. Speaking from the French national training ground in Clairefontaine, he told Le Parisien: "I want to go to a bigger club than Lorient in France or abroad. "I have always said I am a fan of Spain, this is the football I love." Valencia are currently only bidding €7million, which could see PSG come in and steal a march on them, and Gameiro would not be unhappy with this. "If I go abroad it is to play in the Champions League," he continued. "If I stay in France, this would be for the Champions League and maybe also the Europa League." PSG missed out on a Champions League spot in France, but they are in the Europa League next season. "I know Paris, and I have loved the club since I was a child, and have spoken to Mamadou [Sakho, PSG captain] and he is pushing me to come," the player added. Newcastle remain confident of getting Gameiro, but it appears their target is pushing to move elsewhere.
