Watch: Barcelona transfer target Kevin Gameiro scores twice, sends Sevilla to Europa League Final

Current two-time Europa League champions Sevilla have reached the competition's final for the third consecutive season after a 3-1 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk on Thursday. The Rojiblancos will meet Liverpool in two weeks in Basel in what promises to be a sensational football match.

Back to Thursday, the undisputed star of the show was Sevilla striker Kevin Gameiro, who scored the two goals you saw above. The Frenchman is a big target for Barcelona next season, and he might have already been signed as we speak. Gameiro exploded this season with the Sevillistas and is even being considered as part of the France roster for the Euros thanks to 28 goals in 50 appearances in the campaign.

Let me tell you: this guy is a striker's striker, who does not waste chances when they show up out of nowhere (like the first goal), and has speed and skills to get around a goalkeeper with ease and score (like the second goal). Gameiro, if signed, will be a backup to the 'MSN' trio, and if Thursday is any indication, he's certainly got the quality.
