According to the L’Equipe, Swansea, Everton, West Ham, Sunderland and Southampton are all interested in a move for former Arsenal forward Jérémie Aliadière.

The French striker hit 15 goals for Lorient in Ligue 1 last season.

Lyon and Ligue 1 runners-up Marseille are currently monitoring his situation and look set to have rival bids for the Frenchman.

The 30-year-old would fancy a move to England where he started his senior team football career in an attempt to prove himself once again.

Jérémie Aliadière, a product of the Clairefontaine academy, Aliadiere failed to cement a first team place at Arsenal due to the presence of stars like Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp. He scored just 9 goals during his eight years at the club.

He spent time on loan at Celtic, Westham and Wolves before he finally made a permanent switch to Middlesbrough in 2007, during which he scored 12 goals in three years.

Due to his impression since his return to France in 2011, he could be on the move again with several Premier League clubs reportedly circling.
