The French international only signed for the La Liga giants last year, but could already be on the move in a lucrative deal in the Far East.

KEVIN GAMEIRO could be on his way out of Atletico Madrid after being linked with a move to the Chinese Super League.The striker only signed for the La Liga giants last summer from Sevilla in a £27million deal, but could already be on the move again.

He has often played second fiddle under Diego Simeone this campaign, who has preferred star man Antoine Griezmann ahead of him.

However the former PSG forward’s goal return is impressive considering he has largely been used as a substitute – in 39 appearances in all competitions he has scored 14 times.

Spanish news outlet Marca report that the 29-year-old could be tempted to move to the Far East where they have revealed he could earn up to £17million-a-year.

Simeone is no stranger to seeing one of his players depart for China, last year they sold Jackson Martinez to Guangzhou Evergrande, just seven months after they brought him in from Porto.

Gameiro could be persuaded to stay in Madrid to play in their new stadium that will be in use from next season, and may find more first team opportunities with Griezmann likely to join Manchester United in the next transfer window.

However Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette has already reportedly agreed a deal to sign for the 2013/14 La Liga champions, increasing speculation surrounding Gameiro.
