Swans try for Gameiro, Gaitan

Swansea City will launch an ambitious double bid for Atletico Madrid pair Kevin Gameiro (pictured) and Nicolas Gaitan, say reports.

Currently bottom of the English Premier League, the Swans have opened negotiations for the Atleti pair, according to a report in Wales Online.

Gameiro, 30, has 20 goals for Los Rojiblancos since joining from Sevilla in the summer of 2016 and netted the winner at Eibar on Saturday, but may find opportunities limited following Diego Costa’s arrival.

29-year-old Gaitan arrived in the same transfer window from Benfica but has struggled to make an impression and has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs, including Watford and Southampton.

The duo joined Atleti for a combined fee in the region of €55m but it is believed they may be allowed to depart for a combined €40m.
