Hertha Berlin are in negotiations to sign Marseille flop Christian Gimenez.

The Argentine-born striker linked up with Marseille 12 months ago, but has failed to replicate the form he displayed at Basel.

Gimenez was a prolific scorer in the Swiss league, but he mustered just one goal in 21 Ligue 1 appearances last term.

He is now being tipped to leave Marseille before the start of the new campaign, with reports suggesting he has opened talks with Hertha.

The Bundesliga side are thought to want to pair Gimenez in attack with the Turkish schemer Yildiray Basturk.
