Gameiro then Vietto for Barca?

Barcelona could approach Atletico Madrid for Luciano Vietto to be fourth-choice striker if they can’t get Kevin Gameiro from Sevilla

Mundo Deportivo reports the Catalans’ interest in the Argentine, who struggled at Vicente Calderon last year, having made a summer move from Villarreal, falling behind Angel Correa and Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco as Diego Simeone’s alternatives to Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres.

Vietto is good friends with international teammate Lionel Messi and has been directly offered to Barca by his representative, Jorge Cysterpiller, who this week met with Robert Fernandez and Ariado Braida.

The prospect of playing back-up to Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar is one Vietto is said to be open to as he doesn’t feel he’s had a chance to show his worth in his 12 months with Atletico, and views a move to Barca as a chance to relaunch his career.
