Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh has hinted strongly that he will be an Arsenal player next season.

He told L’Equipe: “Do I already have Arsenal on my mind? A little, but our end of the season is so important that I can’t plan for life after Bordeaux.

“I took a risk by not prolonging my contract because I could get injured at any moment. It is the first time I will be a free agent.

“If I extended a transfer clause, everyone could take advantage of it. But the situation is much more complex. I take on my choice.”

And it seems the Grove is Chamakh’s chosen destination. The Chamakh-to-Arsenal rumour has been swirling around the web for ages, but it looks like the move is now probable rather than possible.
