Kévin Gameiro, born May 9, 1987 in Senlis, France, is a French international footballer who plays for French club Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1.
Gameiro plays as a striker whose influence can extend out on the wings and in the hole. Gameiro is described as “a fast, energetic player with good dribbling abilities”, which compensates for his relatively light frame.
Gameiro began his football career playing for clubs along the Oise such as Marly-la-Ville and Chantilly. In 2004, he moved to the Alsace region to join professional club RC Strasbourg.
Gameiro made his professional debut in the 2004–05 season and appeared in the UEFA Cup with Strasbourg. After three seasons with the club, in August 2008, Gameiro signed a four-year deal with FC Lorient. With Lorient, he finished his first two seasons with the club as top scorer.
In the 2009–10 season, Gameiro contributed to the team that achieved a 7th place finish; the club’s highest finish in Ligue 1 ever.
