Gameiro wants European action

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.
