Arsenal target Andre-Pierre Gignac confirms exit from Ligue 1 leaders Marseille at end of season…

The 28-year-old will be out of contract with his current club at the end of the campaign, and appears to be looking for a new challenge.

He is currently the top scorer in the French league, netting 11 times already after just 15 games. His goalscoring exploits have caught the attention of a number of top clubs including Inter Milan, Arsenal, and Liverpool.

It seems they may have to wait to get their man however, with Gignac seemingly happy to see out his contract with Marseille.

“I think I’ll leave at the end of the season,” he said.

“I’d like to know if [coach Marcelo] Bielsa will stay. But I’m looking for a high-level challenge. I’ll examine all proposals carefully.”

His good form has earned him a recall to the French international squad, although his place may be under threat following the early return from injury of Olivier Giroud.
