Arsenal and Liverpool are both reportedly weighing up a late transfer offer for in-form Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac.

Gignac, 29, is currently set to become a free agent at the end of the season, and has consequently been linked with a number of high-profile European clubs.

The French international has scored 14 goals in 23 games for the Ligue 1 title contenders this season, and according to reports in Spain and Italian newspaper Tuttosport, both Liverpool and Arsenal are interested in picking up the striker at what could be a knock-down price.

Although Liverpool were able to call on Daniel Sturridge again on Saturday, signing Gignac would help them avoiding having to rely on Raheem Sterling in the centre-forward position, while the ex-Toulouse man has long been a mooted target for Arsene Wenger.

Whether or not the Premier League duo can convince Marseille to part with Gignac before the end of the season remains to be seen, but the prospect of losing him for nothing in June may be enough to get them to sell up.
