The 28 year old is out of contract in the summer, this despite the fact that the French international has already racked up nine Ligue 1 goals this term, with new boss Marcelo Bielsa clearly getting the most out of the powerful forward.

Marseille top the table but the club is apparently keen to cut their wage bill.

Agent Christopher Hutteau is clearly keen to secure a big move for his client, stating;

“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 at a big club. He can play in England, Arsenal, no problem. For me, it is between €12 million (£9.5m) and €15 million (£11m).”

Gignac netted his first French national team goal in five years in midweek, during France’s 3-0 friendly win over Armenia.

Though it’s true that Arsene Wenger has brought in Danny Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez to greatly boost his attack the fact that both Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud are out with long term injuries and Lukas Podolski continues to fail to impress may lead the north London side to consider a move for the Marseille man, especially as they could in theory bring in the player ‘on the cheap’ in January.
