West Ham and Cardiff both want Saviola.
Cardiff City and West Ham United are both in the race to sign ex-Real Madrid and Barcelona forward Javier Saviola after Malaga released the 31-year-old at the end of last season, according to the Daily Star.
Saviola has played at some of the biggest clubs in Europe during a varied career on the continent that started when the Argentinian moved to the Nou Camp from River Plate in 2001 for a colossal £31.6m fee.
Since then, as well as Madrid the striker has also spent time at AS Monaco, Sevilla and Benfica, but now looks set to try his hand in England for the first time.
Premier League new boys Cardiff want the Argentine to bolster their attack as they bid to stay in the English top flight following promotion from the Championship, whilst the Hammers see Saviola as the perfect partner for new signing Andy Carroll.
The forward would be quite the coup for either side as although he never quite lived up to the expectations at Barca, Saviola has still earned 40 caps for Argentina and scored 11 goals.
The Blue Birds would want to add the South American to club record signing Andreas Cornelius, who joined from FC Copenhagen in a £7.5m deal.
Blackpool’s Tom Ince has also been heavily linked with a move to the Welsh capital as manager Malky Mackay makes his intentions known that Cardiff will compete in the top tier.
West Ham meanwhile have turned their attention to Saviola after missing out on both Alvaro Negredo of Sevilla and Vitesse Arnhem’s Wilfried Bony.
