Liverpool have entered the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain striker Kevin Gameiro who recently admitted that he was in talks with Sevilla over a possible move.
The 26 year old saw his opportunities severely limited last season after PSG invested heavily in attacking talent and his future has now been put in further doubt after the French champions completed a £55m deal for Edinson Cavani.
With Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cavani ahead of him in the pecking order it is unlikely that Gameiro would find regular action next season and he has already suggested that he would seek to move if handed a role merely as a substitute.
"Yes, I'm talking to Sevilla because I want to play more. I'm not going to deny it. If my role here is merely as a substitute then I need to make the decision to continue my career somewhere else," said Gameiro.
"I want to play football, I need to score goals. It's less than a year to the World Cup and that's one of my aims."
While Sevilla have already entered into negotiations, Spanish publication El Desmarque reports that Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will also submit an offer for the striker after initially attempting to sign him back in January.
Liverpool have already signed one striker in Iago Aspas but it is believed that Rodgers is on the lookout for another forward as there continues to be speculation over whether Luis Suarez will be at the club next season.
Gameiro was considered one of the brightest talents in Ligue 1 when he scored 22 league goals for Lorient in the 2010/11 season and was subsequently snapped up by PSG. He fired 11 goals in his first season but soon found his opportunities limited after heavy investment from the club's Qatari owners.
Liverpool may well have to work quickly to complete a deal for the France international as Sevilla will be keen to quickly find a suitable replacement for star striker Alvaro Negredo who is set to join Manchester City.
