Steve Gohouri: Left Wigan last summer after making 44 appearances for the Premie

Gohouri, 31, currently plays for Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv but has been linked with a move to Reading or Southampton.

Both teams will be looking to strengthen their squads in January as they bid to avoid instant relegation back to the Championship.

The Ivory Coast international spent two-and-a half seasons at Wigan after joining from German team Borussia Moenchengladbach in January 2010.

But he fell out of favour with Latics boss Roberto Martinez and was released last summer when his contract expired.

"I've always loved the Premier League, the fans and the stadiums are great," said Gohouri.

"At the moment I feel well in Israel but you never know.

"I have great memories at Wigan, where we had a brilliant chairman. My first year was fantastic, the second year was a bit difficult, but I love the life there."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
