Marouane Chamakh has responded to all the rumours which were linking him to a possible Arsenal exit in January after he became a weekly sideline player. The 27-year-old striker seems to be interested to leave, but not in January.
‘I am 27 and I need to play. I cannot stay like this forever. I won’t leave in January but I will take an important decision in June.”, said Chamakh
‘I was surprised by the offers I got last summer but my priority was to stay at Arsenal. A return to France? If so, it will be to Bordeaux.’
Chamakh didn’t really prove his worth at Arsenal having scored only 12 goals since he joined in 2010. The striker had a good start with 11 goals in the first season, but an injury got him off his game and now with Gervinho, Walcott and Robin Van Persie holding tight to their positions it’s impossible for Chamakh to hind his place in the squad.
