Arsenal May Sign Kevin Gameiro for $16 Million: Soccer Roundup

Dec. 1 (Bloomberg) -- The following is a roundup of soccer stories from European newspapers, with clickable links to the Web.

Arsenal’s French Deal

Arsenal may sign French striker Kevin Gameiro in January for as much as 10 million pounds ($15.6 million), Metro reported.

The 23-year-old Lorient player has also sparked the interest of Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

Liverpool Eye Elmander

Liverpool may have to pay as much as 5 million pounds for Bolton player Johan Elmander, the Daily Mirror reported.

Elmander last week turned down a contract extension of one year offered by Wanderers, the Mirror said. Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson twice tried in vain to buy Elmander when he was in charge of Fulham.

Ancelotti’s Way Out?

Roma has been in touch with Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti, the Independent reported. The Italian has voiced his discontent over events at the London club, including the dismissal of his assistant Ray Wilkins. Roma is managed by former Chelsea coach Claudio Ranieri.

The Daily Express reported Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola is being lined up to replace Ancelotti.

Johnson’s England Hopes

Birmingham City player Roger Johnson, 27, deserves a call-up for England, the Daily Mail cited his manager Alex McLeish as saying.

“He is desperate to play for England,” McLeish told the newspaper. “Even if Fabio Capello gives him just one (game) he will be able to say he played for England and you could never take that away from him.”
