€6m bid to be submitted for Tottenham, Newcastle, Arsenal linked striker Gignac

Marseille Velodrome

Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac is wanted by Russian side Dynamo Moscow.

French international striker Andre-Pierre Gignac is becoming one of the most in demand forwards in Europe.

The 28-year-old has been in prolific form for Marseille in Ligue 1, helping them reach the top spot above champions PSG.

He has netted 11 goals in 14 games this season, but the big problem for Marcelo Bielsa's side is his contract runs out net summer and he is yet to sign a new deal.

Arsenal and Newcastle were linked with him last month by the Mirror, with Tottenham also linked to the forward.

They are not the only ones however, with Eurosport France reporting today that Russian side Dynamo Moscow want to open the bidding at €6 million.

The offer would surely be rejected due to not only being too low, but Gignac's current importance to the side. It would take at least double that for Marseille to consider selling.

Dynamo Moscow were however the surprise side to tempt Mathieu Valbuena away from Marseille in the summer, and his friendship with Gignac could yet be their trump card.

If Gignac sees out the season and decides to sign on a free transfer next summer, Moscow's chances may increase, should they not be outbid by one of his Premier League suitors in January.
