According to our information, French striker Kévin Gameiro (34) is discussing with OM around a two-year lease. The international is at the end of the contract in Valence.
With departures from Florian Thauvin, Valère Germain, Saif-Eddine Khaoui, and perhaps others (Arek Milik, Dario Benedetto), OM will have to reshape their offensive sector this summer. The Marseille club began to look into the matter, reaching an agreement with Barça to the transfer of young American winger Konrad de la Fuente (19 years old). And he could welcome another player from Spain: a certain Kévin Gameiro.

The 34-year-old French international (13 caps, 3 goals) is now at the end of his contract in Valence. Several French clubs have approached him, but according to information from RMC Sport, it is with the Marseille club that the player is negotiating. Gameiro would see himself joining OM, who have contacted him several times in his career, and discussions revolve around a possible two-year contract – until 2023.
Having become a pro in Strasbourg, before joining Lorient then PSG, Gameiro crossed the Pyrenees in 2013, first to defend the colors of Sevilla, then those of Atlético, and therefore of Valence since 2018. Within the beloved club , the attacker notably crossed paths with Pablo Longoria, who has since become president of OM and today at the forefront of the transfer market.
Four-time Europa League winner with Sevilla and then Atlético, and respected scorer in Spain, Gameiro has been much less visible in the past two years. He goes out of a complicated 2020-2021 season, with just four small goals in 27 appearances (1,067 minutes played).
