Andre-Pierre Gignac has been tipped to make a move to either Arsenal or Liverpool by his agent Christophe Hutteau.

It is believed that Marseille president Vincent Labrune is hoping to offload some of Marseille's highest earners in the January transfer window. Gignac, who is in hot form at the moment, lands in that bracket.

Ahead of the window, the player's agent, Hutteau, has attempted to whip up some interest in his client. He has started by suggesting that the 28-year-old could yet make a move to the Premier League.

Speaking to L'Equipe, he said: "Given the fact that it 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 and €15 million."


Gignac was linked with a move to Arsenal in the earlier years of his football career but has since dropped off the radar. However, his form this season threatens to throw him back into the media limelight.

Thus far, Gignac has scored eight goals in seven games for Marseille. He is outscoring PSG superstars Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani and has been the driving force behind Marseille's early charge to the summit of Ligue 1.

Premier League move

However, Arsenal seems an unlikely destination after Arsene Wenger paid £16 million to sign Danny Welbeck in the transfer window. The Arsenal boss will also be able to call on Olivier Giroud and Yaya Sanogo while Alexis Sanchez has also been used centrally.

Liverpool appears to be a more likely move but still unrealistic. Rickie Lambert's arrival was a short-term option while Mario Balotelli and Daniel Sturridge wil require competition to stay at their best.
