While British and Italian tabloids across Europe continue to link André Pierre Gignac, the Marseille out of contract striker this summer with a move to tens of clubs across the continent, there is one outfit that is more keen than most to sign APG for free at the end of the season.
Dynamo Moscow made an attempt last month the buy the player out of his last 6 months of his contract with a €2m offer to Marseille, which was flatly rejected, but the Russian side has not given up hope.
Since the departure of Mathieu Valbuena from Marseille to Dynamo Moscow last summer, the Russian club’s representatives have kept an eye OM’s situation and are willing to offer André Pierre-Gignac an astronomical salary for this summer.
Valbuena was incidentally at Marseille’s 3-2 loss to SM Caen last night where he confirmed that Dynamo Moscow were interested in signing Gignac. The club remains in contact with Gignac’s representatives and have presented a concrete offer to the player.
The question remains whether like Mathieu Valbuena, the offers from clubs closer to home will be insufficient (Valbuena only received offers from AC Milan and Sevilla) for Gignac and whether that might push him to join his former teammate in Moscow.
Gignac did score last night after he came off the bench, despite claims that there has been a midweek rift between APG and manager Marcelo Bielsa, the pair celebrated the formers goal.
