The Daily Mail has revealed that out-of-favour Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh could finally be ready to end his Gunners misery in the January transfer window.
This is because Turkish side Fenerbahce have emerged as admirers of the forward and could make their move in the New Year.
Chamakh arrived in the English Premier League in 2010, but has never really got going for Arsene Wenger’s men and has started just one league game this season.
The Moroccan did however manager to grab himself two goals in the Capital One Cup victory over Reading earlier in the campaign, but when it comes to the league, he seems to be a long way down the pecking order.
Fenerbahce seem ready to step-up their interest in Chamakh and Ligue 1 outfit Bordeaux are also open to re-signing their former front-man.
However, the French side don’t seem to have the funds to pay him the £65,000-per-week that he is currently on, which does give the team from Turkey the advantage.
It is certainly one to keep an eye on as Chamakh seems desperate to leave and Arsenal want to lower their wage bill. With the news of a move being possible, a few other clubs could take a risk on the hit-and-miss striker.
