According to French paper L’Equipe, at the top of their wish list this summer is Toulouse striker Andre-Pierre Gignac, who was the league’s top goal scorer in the 2008/09 season.

Despite netting just 11 times in the last campaign, Gignac remains hot property, and OM are looking to land him during the transfer window as soon as possible. The 24-year-old will be on the plane to South Africa with France to compete in the World Cup in South Africa.
