According to the Daily Mail, Newcastle United have increased their offer for Lorient Striker Kevin Gameiro to £10 million.
Pardew, with around £30 million to play with clearly sees a striker as one of his top priorities – I think we can all agree there. The likes of Ameobi, Lovenkrands and Ranger are not likely to push us into European contention, let alone the top half of the table. If Mike Ashley wants European football, he’s going to have to hand over the cash for quality players.
Gameiro would be a quality addition to Newcastle’s squad, but would he join a team who finished mid-table over a top European side like Valencia?
In the meantime, take a look at some of Gameiro’s goals in the video below. Future Newcastle Number 9? Let’s hope so!
