The Frenchman became the number 1 objective to occupy the 4th striker role
Sevilla's Kevin Gameiro is the number one on the list of candidates for reinforcing Barça's attack. Nolito already has one foot and a half in Manchester City and now all the efforts are focused on the negotitations for this French striker who has scored 29 goals this season.
According to Marca, the player is very excited about the opportunity to come to the Blaugrana club and he proved to be very receptive to the offer. Now, however, he will have to wait for Barça and Sevilla to reach an agreement in those negotiations that are expected to be complicated.
First of all, the Sevillan team already pointed to the 40 million euros buyout clause they ask if someone wants to sign the footballer. Sevilla don't have any necessity to sell their main striker and, if he leaves, they want it to be for a high amount of money. Barça consider that this amount is too high for a 29-year-old player and they planned on making a lower priced offer in the coming days.
The sporting direction of Barça has a lor of good reports on Gameiro and he could be a safe substitute for the trident. Unlike Nolito, Gameiro can play as a winger on both side and as a striker as well to replace Suárez. He scores a lot, knows La Liga and would agree to being on the bench. The only thing left is to negotiate.
