Kevin Gameiro has been linked with a move to Everton

Atletico Madrid striker Kevin Gameiro says he is fine where he is, amid interest from Everton.

The 30-year-old has been linked with a move away from the club after spending most of his time on the fringes of the first team.

But he was handed a rare start at the weekend and marked the occasion with two goals in Atletico's 5-0 rout of Levante.

It was only Gameiro's third La Liga start of the campaign and his opportunities in the first team are expected to dry up even further in January when Diego Costa arrives.

It has been suggested that the Frenchman may look to move on during the window and he has been extensively linked with struggling Everton.

But, although he refused to rule out a New Year departure, Gameiro insists he is happy where at Atletico.

He told Marca: "It's normal to be much happier when you are scoring goals and contributing to the team.

"At the moment I'm giving everything for the team, I'm fine here and we'll see what happens in January."
