Melbourne Victory have confirmed they are in discussions with William Gallas, who has been linked with Crystal Palace.
Gallas left Tottenham at the end of last season after three years at White Hart Lane and the 36-year-old could be set to finish his career down under.
Victory head coach Ange Postecoglou believes the 36-year-old is the “right fit” for the club.
“I think with players like William Gallas you can never say whether you are close or not,” he was quoted as saying on foxsports.com.au.
“Would we be interested? Yes, of course. We’ve got a marquee spot to fill before the season and it’s got to be the right fit for us.”
“We’ve got a really young group and part of what I’m looking for in a marquee player is some real experience and some leadership as well,” he added.
