Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac has hinted that his future may be in Italy as he labels Inter Milan as a 'nice prospect', reports talkSPORT.

The Frenchman, who has netted 11 goals in just 15 games already this season in Ligue 1, has been scouted by Premier League duo Arsenal and Liverpool, but in a recent interview with Gazzetta dello Sport, Gignac admitted that his future may well be in Serie A.

The striker admitted that he may be leaving Marseille at the end of the season and then he continued discussing a potential move to Inter Milan, and when asked, he revealed that he admires Roberto Mancini and the prospect of joining the Italian side is a nice one.

Contract Expiring 

The 28-year-old is set to enter the final few months of his contract in France, and due to the Bosman Ruling, he could talk to Inter Milan, Arsenal and Liverpool in January with his contract entering its final six months.

Due to the three sides being overseas clubs, from France, they have permission to hold contract talks with Gignac and he could then in turn agree a deal in principle to join the club of his choice.

If the striker then agrees a deal with one of the clubs, he will then join them for free in the Summer once his deal expires in Marseille.

Future Talk

When asked about his future in France, Gignac told Gazzetta dello Sport: "I think I will leave late in the season. I want a top-flight challenge. I will consider all proposals carefully."

It's believed Gignac was talking about proposals from England and Italy, but when pushed further about a potential move to Inter Milan, Gignac didn't hide his feelings towards the club.

He added: "Inter are an institution, [Roberto] Mancini is a great coach, it would be a nice prospect.

"I look at all the major championships and I admire the tactical culture of Italy."

It appears that Marseille are reluctantly accepting that their star-man will be leaving the club next Summer and their search for a replacement will begin.
