Arsenal are set to make a new attempt to sign France international forward Andre-Pierre Gignac, according to ESPN Deportes.

Journalist Jordi Blanco reports that the 31 year old is interesting the Gunners after having tried to sign the striker on two previous occasions; the first being all the way back in 2009.

Gignac currently plays for Mexican side Tigres UANL after making a surprise move to Central America back in the summer of 2015. He was given a surprise call up by France boss Didier Deschamps back in November 2015 and was part of the Euro 2016 team that made it to the final of the tournament. His last call up however came back in October and hasn’t been included in a squad since then.

For Tigres, he unsurprisingly has a good goalscoring record considering the lower quality of the Mexican league, and so far he has scored 56 goals in 94 games during his two years at the club.
