Arsenal and Liverpool are reportedly monitoring Hugo Rodallega's contract situation with Wigan.
The Colombian striker's deal expires at the end of the season and, it has been claimed, Wigan have stalled talks and told Rodallega to focus on firing them to safety.
According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal and Liverpool are now 'showing interest' in the 26-year-old, while Aston Villa are also considering a move.
Arsenal and Liverpool have both been linked with Rodallega in the past, although the former are thought to be more conerned with goalscoring reinforcements than the latter.
Kenny Dalglish already has Luis Suarez, Andy Carroll, Dirk Kuyt and Craig Bellamy in his forward ranks, but Arsene Wenger is lacking numbers in that department.
With Nicklas Bendtner on loan with Sunderland, Arsenal can only count Robin van Persie and Maroaune Chamakh among their recognised first-team strikers, and Wenger is thought to be identifying potential acquisitions.
