Lorient determined to keep Gameiro

Lorient president Loic Fery insists he will fight to keep in-demand striker Kevin Gameiro in Brittany this summer, despite failing to agree a contract with him thus far.

Gameiro, 23, has attracted interest from around Europe this season with the likes of Bordeaux, Valencia, Arsenal and Tottenham strongly linked with a bid.

However, Lorient supremo Fery insists he wants to keep the forward despite his contract running out in June next year.

"We can imagine three possibilities,'' he told L'Equipe. "Let him go at the end of his contract, transfer him this summer or extend his deal at Lorient.

"We've made considerable efforts - so far unsuccessfully - to try to extend his contract. I have not given up. Nothing is ruled out.''

Gameiro has scored 15 goals in 23 games for Lorient this season and made his international debut for France in a Euro 2012 qualifier against Belarus last September.

Arsenal had been tipped as favourites to land Gameiro, after their successful dealings with Lorient last summer when they siged centre-back Laurent Koscielny for £8 million.
