Liverpool and Arsenal are both reportedly trying to decide whether or not to make a last-minute bid for Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac.
The 29-year-old is set to become a free agent in the summer and with his form in front of goal this season scoring 14 goals in 23 games he has attracted attention from some of Europe’s top clubs.
Now reports in Spain and Italian newspaper Tuttosport both premiership teams are looking to pick-up what could be the bargain of the January transfer window.
Despite now having Daniel Sturridge available Liverpool would be able to use Gignac up front not solely relying on Raheem Sterling, while the former Toulouse striker has long been talked about as a favourite of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.
It remains to be seen if Arsenal or Liverpool can convince Marseille to let him go, but the prospect of seeing him walk away at the end of the season for nothing can be mighty motivating for any club.
