Striker abroad negotiating move away

Marseille have confirmed that striker Andre-Pierre Gignac is abroad negotiating a move away from the club. Reports have suggested that a host of Premier League clubs are keen, with Fulham, Everton and Blackburn all linked whilst Genoa and Olympiakos have also been mentioned. Marseille have not revealed who their striker is talking to, but confirmed he is set to leave. "I understand he is abroad," assistant coach Guy Stephan confirmed. "There are negotiations currently ongoing, but we need all three parties [two clubs and player] to agree. Maybe it will or will not happen." Marseille themselves are still in the market for a new striker ahead of Wednesday's transfer deadline.
