The 28 year old French international is out of contract in the summer and no new deal has been discussed and Brendan Rodgers may well see the experienced striker as a cost effective target either in January or next summer when he would be available on a free transfer.

Gignac’s agent has publicly cited Liverpool and Arsenal as possible destinations for his client;

“Given the fact that he is not very old, he has a real market value.

“This is a striker with a relatively atypical profile, responsive to the physical challenge, the archetypal player who can succeed in a big club.

“He can play in England, Arsenal or Liverpool, no problem. For me, it is (his real value) between 12 and 15 million euros.”

Gignac netted 22 goals in all competitions last term and could offer Rodgers a further striking option with his Liverpool side struggling to effectively fill the void left by Luis Suarez’s departure to Barcelona.

Thus far this term Marseille has been rejuvenated under Marcelo Bielsa with Gignac leading the way with eight goals in Ligue 1 alone.
