Betting update: Tottenham clear favourites to sign prolific Madrid striker

By Harry Sykes

Tottenham have been installed as the clear favourites to sign Kevin Gameiro from Atletico Madrid this summer.

Spurs are leading running to land the prolific France striker, who has continued to plunder goals since his £27million transfer from Sevilla last year.

Bet Victor have placed odds of 4/1 on the north Londoners signing Gameiro, 29, ahead of closest rivals Manchester United, who are 6/1.

Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid are 8/1 in the betting, ahead of French champions Paris Saint-Germain, who are 12/1.

Gameiro has been a mainstay of the Atletico side this season despite intense competition for the forward roles in the team alongside the likes of Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres.

The 12-times France international has scored 14 goals and supplied seven assists in 39 matches in all competitions, including 10 goals from 19 league starts.

Gameiro has been a prolific scorer throughout his career, netting 67 times in 145 Sevilla matches as well as 56 goals in 120 Lorient games.

Spurs are likely to strengthen their forward line during the summer transfer window as Mauricio Pochettino aims to pep up an attack overly reliant on Harry Kane.

In other Tottenham news, a forward has signed after Spurs agreed terms on an out-of-window deal.
