Gameiro a possible January target

| Tuesday, 26 September 2017 15comments  |  Jump to last
It's an obvious link but The Mirror suggest that Everton "could" make a move for striker Kevin Gameiro when the next transfer window opens.

The 30-year-old could be forced down the pecking order at Atletico Madrid once Diego Costa completes his move back there from Chelsea which could prompt him to seek a fresh challenge elsewhere.

The Blues will be easy tabloid fodder when the transfer speculation starts ramping up again given their known need for a striker to replace Romelu Lukaku.

I would take him all day long but he's not exactly the “stereotypical” target man that Koeman is after, is he...

Mind you, saw him play the lone striker role for Sevilla and he was shit hot and had a very good season upon moving to Atletico Madrid.

According to 365, Everton representatives have met with Cavani and his advisers:

There's going to be a lot of this going around.

Realistically how many of these guys will want to play outside of the Champions League – even with the rewards on offer at Everton. Not many under 30, I'd be willing to bet.

Another star striker linked, to go with Cavani and Costa – not a chance they will join us! And a striker under 30 would be nice too in our search.

A proven goal scorer is wanted so I understand why Giroud and Costa were considered but maybe a look at players like Volland, Uth, Williams, Locadia and Werner will be the best option?

Interesting to be linked, but could be paper nonsense or agents looking to drum up interest.

Nevertheless, looking forward to a page of ToffeeWeb moaning about ridiculous targets and Kenwright bluffing to nicely counteract all the moaning about not being ambitious enough or securing a replacement for Lukaku.

Just imagine we did get Cavani, I can already picture the scene.

"Moan Moan whinge 'over the hill', misery, misery, groan 'too slow', mope, mope 'getting PSG cast offs', gripe, gripe 'why didn't that Dutch buffoon secure services of [insert first choice 20-something strike for Champions League team here]" etc

Chris, I reckon if we got Cavani, there would be not a single complaint. We won't, though.

Any under-30 players out there? If not, then why not Falcao (Monaco)? Fit and scoring for fun again.

Why do we insist on getting a big-name striker? It strikes me (pun!) that the ones who we might get would be over 30 (as previously pointed out), want big bucks in wages, and be on the Wayne (another pun). Plus we have one of them anyway...

Rather than laying out massive money on a name, why don't we work with what we have in Calvert-Lewin, who is getting better all the time. Also, Niasse has bags of energy and does seem to know where the goal is. And Sandro needs time and direction.

All three need game time; it's obvious we aren't going to win anything this season and all this chopping and changing isn't going to develop a team.

Is he slow enough for us?

Same basic question as Colin. Are we that short of reputation that we have to be linked with only 30+ year olds?

John – good one.

I spotted Falcao before he went to Monaco – you don't suddenly stop being absolutely class.

He is a beast of a striker and, despite struggling initially, I think he would be a brilliant signing. World class.

I've been shouting this player's name before he signed for Atletico Madrid; out of all the strikers and prices, I would take Gimeiro without a doubt. For those asking: yes, he is quick; yes, he can score... and has plenty of skill as well.

I noticed him first a few years ago against our neighbours, I think it was the Europa League, he tore them to shreds. He was everywhere, unbelievable skill. He then came on as a sub last season and banged a hat-trick in in under 5 mins. He is one player who can take us up a level. If we get him, I promise fellow Evertonians, you will not be disappointed.

Get him signed, please, Ronnie.

Now this one I like and there is a chance.
