Fulham to clinch Andre-Pierre Gignac signing from Marseille - report

The 25-year-old France international has failed to establish himself at the Stade Velodrome and will move on loan to the west London club
Marseille's Andre-Pierre Gignac is in London to negotiate a loan move to Premier League club Fulham, La Provence reports.

Gignac was an €18 million signing for Marseille last summer from Toulouse, but after criticism for his performances in the south of France and just 12 goals for the club in all competitions, it seems he could be on his way out of Ligue 1.

Talks between the player and the west London side are believed to be advanced and personal terms aren't a problem, though an agreement has yet to be reached between the two clubs, with Marseille wanting Fulham to pay all of Gignac's wages.

The former Toulouse man's departure would pave the way for Marseille to sign another striker to fill the void left by Gignac, with Roma's Marco Borriello and Juventus' Amauri linked with a move last year's Ligue 1 runners-up.
