Cape Town - Andre-Pierre Gignac, a free agent at the end of the season, is being linked with a move to Liverpool next summer.

talkSPORT report that Liverpool and Arsenal are interested in signing Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac.

The French striker has been in fine form this season in Ligue 1, where he has netted 10 goals in 12 appearances but Marseille now face the task of convincing their influential forward to stay at the club.

Liverpool and Arsenal remain the front-runners to land Gignac on a free transfer but reports in France suggest that Dynamo Moscow are also interested in the striker.

Dynamo Moscow want to bring Gignac to Russia to link up with former teammate and France international Mathieu Valbuena.

The Russian club managed to convince Valbuena to chose Russia over England last season and will be hoping to do the same with Gignac.

Gignac has an impressive goal return in Ligue 1 for Marseille where he averages four goals every ten games. 

Gignac joined Marseille in 2010 for a fee in the region of €16 million.
