To me this is very simple. You need to inform your client that you have to take this offer to your contract employer. Give them a chance to contact the employer first. Then you need to contact your employer and notify them of the unsolicited offer, tell them that you told the client they had to go through your employer first, and ask the employer if they would be willing to work out a deal that would benefit you and them.

The employer most likely has a clause in their contract with the client that provides for compensation to the employer should a client want to hire a contractor directly. Most employers will negotiate such a transaction because if they say no, it can be uncomfortable keeping a contractor with that client and they certainly don't want the client dropping the contractor all together.

Who expects that once you are a direct employ, the client will have more interesting work for you to do and frankly corporate politics is the price you pay for job security...
