Incidentally, the future of the 30-year-old at Wanda Metropolitano-Atletico’s new headquarters-is very bleak.
And his arrival into Diego Simeone’s ranks will likely see Gameiro’s game-time cut.
The forward, who signed from Sevilla for £28.8million in July 2016, is contracted until 2020 and Atletico “could loan out Gameiro until the summer of 2018 or negotiate a permanent move worth around £20m”.
This week, The Mirror have reported that Everton have been made aware of the potential of a deal to sign Atletico Madrid attacker Kevin Gameiro in the January transfer window – and he certainly fits the bill.
Gameiro is becoming anxious about the playing time he’ll have after Christmas and move to Goodison Park could suit all parties.
Gamerio, who scored 16 goals in his debut season for Atletico past year, would certainly bolster Everton’s attacking threat.
The France global has netted three times in 13 caps and has a trio of Europa League medals from his time at Sevilla.
Oumar Niasse stepped up to score twice against Bournemouth on Saturday, whilst Dominic Calvert-Lewin has flashed real potential, but Everton lack a proven goalscorer to lead their attack.
