Liverpool striker target Gervinho is being monitored by 'huge' clubs in England, a French journalist has confirmed.

The Lille forward has been linked with a number of clubs across Europe, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger thought to be keen on bringing the player to the Emirates.

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly leading the race to the sign the player at the current time, with the Daily Mail claiming today that Harry Redknapp is in strong pursuit of the £10 million Ivorian.

However, Liverpool have been linked with the player on several occasions, with claims in January that the Merseysiders approached the Ligue 1 over a move for the player.

"Huge English clubs are looking at Gervinho," French journalist Xavi Rivoire told talkSPORT.

Kenny Dalglish has sent scouts to watch the 23-year-old in France, and the Liverpool boss is known to be in the market for another striker this summer.


Luis Suarez has been an instant success at Anfield after his arrival from Ajax in January, while Andy Carroll has shown promise despite limited opportunities since his £35 million move to Anfield.

A defender and winger are also thought to be on the agenda, with Dalglish and Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli working together to bring transfer targets to the club.

Comolli is still thought to have connections in France, and that could be key to Liverpool landing the coveted hitman.
