Despite only being with the club permanently for 12-months, recent reports have linked the Argentine striker with a move away.

TMW claim that French side Marseille is leading the charge to land the 26-year-old, however, he is not without other admirers, including Premier League side West Ham United.

It has been noted that alongside the Hammers, who are keeping tabs on the striker, is also Spanish duo Celta Vigo and Villarreal.
