Lorient forward Kevin Gameiro has expressed his delight that Valencia have reportedly rekindled their interest in him.
The France international striker has been strongly linked with a move to England in recent months.
Arsenal and Liverpool were believed to be keen, while North East sources claimed Newcastle had lodged a €10million bid, but Valencia now look firm favourites to land him.
Los Che sealed a deal for Lille's Adil Rami in January to secure his arrival this summer and they are looking to make that a double French swoop with Gameiro's signature.
Gameiro has previously stated his preference to move to Valencia, and now reports claim they have made a fresh bid.
"Valencia is a very good club and I am thrilled they are showing me they want me to join them," Gameiro is quoted as saying.
"This summer will be fascinating, hopefully we will all be fine, I want to score in the last game of the season."
Lorient's final game of the season is against Auxerre on Sunday.
