Marouane Chamakh wants Arsenal

Bordeaux frontman Marouane Chamakh has revealed that he wants to move to England this summer when he becomes a free agent.


Several English Clubs including Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea, Everton, have been chasing the highly-rated Moroccan international and made contact with Chamakh’s representatives who is out of contract at Bordeaux in the summer. But Chamakh has now openly expressed his desire that he wants to sign for the Gunners. The 26-year-old striker is following his childhood dream to play for Arsenal and believes that Premier League is the best Football League in the world at this point of time. Arsenal tried to sign Chamakh last summer but could not agree terms, but Arsene Wenger has retained his interest. Inter Milan, Juventus and Sevilla are also believed to be amongst the clubs  interested in Chamakh and have also been in touch with the Player’s representative, but it seems that Chamakh has already made up his mind.

During an interview, when he was asked about his future, he openly said that he is nearing an exit and it is up to him where he moves. He reiterated that his preferance has always been Arsenal and he really is a big fan of Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal style of playing football. The Moroccan forward was also full of praise for his club Bordeaux and the coach Laurent Blanc and described how he transformed him into a quality striker.

The 6ft 1in forward has made 246 appearances for Bordeaux and netted 69 goals so far. Chamakh’s recent form and last season performances, which led Bordeaux to French League Triumph, are most notable. With the make-shift striker, Arshavin, struggling to adapt to the striking role and with Van Persie injured, it certainly seems that Chamakh is being shortlisted by Wenger as a potential summer target who can solve Arsenal’s miseries as they had been falling short of striking options now and then.
