Everton eyeing January move for Kevin Gameiro


Everton’s goalscoring woes in the Premier League have led to reports that they’ll be targeting Kevin Gameiro in the January transfer window, according to The Daily Mirror.

Ronald Koeman’s troops sit in 14th after six games, winning two, drawing one and losing three, with only four goals scored.

The French striker would add pace and experience to an Everton attack usually comprised of youngster Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Sandro Ramirez, while Wayne Rooney tends to operate from deeper positions.

Kevin Gameiro is a three-time UEFA Europa League winner with Sevilla, where he scored 67 goals in 144 appearances between 2013 and 2016.

Kevin Gameiro moved to Atletico Madrid from Sevilla in the summer of 2016 but has failed to live up to his €32 million price tag, scoring 12 times from 31 appearances in La Liga last season.

He’s received just 27 minutes worth of playing time this campaign, both of which were substitute appearances, as Luciano Vietto and Angel Correa have been Diego Simeone’s preferred options.

With news of Diego Costa’s impending arrival at the Wanda Metropolitano in January, Kevin Gameiro might be surplus to requirements, giving Everton a plausible scenario where they could land a deal for the Frenchman.
