Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac is reject the interest of Premier League duo Arsenal and Liverpool in favour of signing a new deal with his current club, Talksport
The France international has begun the campaign in superb form, scoring 10 goals in as many Ligue 1 fixtures to catapult his side to the top of the table ahead of title favourites Paris St. Germain.
As a result of his scoring exploits, he has been linked with a move elsewhere, with Arsenal – whose manager Arsene Wenger regularly dips into the French market – and Liverpool both reportedly interested. They were also said to be hopeful of securing a deal given that the 28-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season.
However, reports in France are suggesting that he is likely to commit his future to Marseille, who have already opened talks with the player over a new contract and extend his stay, which began when he was signed from Toulouse for £13m in 2010. He has since gone on to score 64 goals in 160 appearances.
