Atletico Madrid mark out Gameiro as Diego Costa alternative

Article of mine for MARCA

Sevilla's Kevin Gameiro is on the wish-list of Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone should it not prove possible to bring Diego Costa back to the Estadio Vicente Calderon.

Costa shone under the guidance of Simeone but with Chelsea not keen on facilitating the sale of the forward, Los Colchoneros has been investigating alternatives as they look to strengthen their attacking options for the new campaign.

Gameiro didn't get called up by France for the European Championship despite netting 29 goals in all competitions last term but, along with the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, he's very much on Atletico's radar according to France Football.

The forward has also been linked with Barcelona and may seek to push onto a fresh challenge after three years in Andalusia.
