Agent: Arsenal Or Liverpool Could Move For Red Hot 8 Goals In 8 Games Striker

Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac’s agent has suggested that either Arsenal or Liverpool could make a move for the French striker in the January, as reported by the Daily Express.

The forward has been in exceptional form since the start of the new season, scoring eight goals in eight appearances for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

Christopher Hutteau, Gignac’s agent, told L’Equipe: “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 or Liverpool, no problem. For me, it is between €12 million (£9.5m) and €15 million (£11m).”

Despite having been inconsistent since moving to the Stade Velodrome several years ago, Gignac has always seemed to be on the cusp of a move to the Premier League, given his physical stature and technical ability, which many see as ideally suited to the English game.

A season with Toulouse in 2008/09 saw him score 24 goals in 38 games, suggesting great potential and earning him opportunities for the French national side.

However, his move to Marseille has seen him struggle to put together consistent displays, and he was even sent to the reserves in 2011.

He was previously linked with Fulham while his form was indifferent.
