Everton to rekindle interest in Marseille striker?By Ryan Grant • Dec 2nd, 2011 • Category: News |
Everton have been linked with a January swoop for Marseille striker André-Pierre Gignac.
The Toffees previously held a strong interest in bringing the France international to Goodison Park on loan during the summer but faced stiff competition from Fulham, who also tried – but ultimately failed – to sign the 25-year-old.
It is likely that Everton would favour a loan move again, but reports suggest a potential £7.5m bid for the striker could be on the cards in January after Everton manager David Moyes was given the green light to spend some of the money generated from Mikel Arteta’s sale to Arsenal.
Fulham may attempt to hijack any potential move for Gignac despite him seeing first team football extremely limited this term.
