Wenger plots last minute raid for Chamakh

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is said to have made a last minute attempt to sign Bordeaux star Marouane Chamakh.

The Moroccan international has been subject to increased speculation on a move away from the Stade Chaban-Delmas, with numerous Premier League clubs such as Arsenal, West Ham and Sunderland said to have expressed interest over the summer. 

West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola is still said to interested in signing the 25-year-old, despite reports that Chamakh has turned down a move to Upton Park.

“Yes, indeed, my representatives were in London,” he said in L’Equipe. “Maybe the offer has come too late. 

“I am focused on Bordeaux, but you never know what can happen. Let us say there is a 90 per cent chance that I will stay and a 10% chance that I will leave.”

However many still believe the Moroccan striker is awaiting a bid from Arsenal after rumours emerged that he will not sign a new contract at the Ligue 1 side.

Wenger is certainly no newcomer to last minute deals with Andriy Arshavin signing at the deadline back in January.

  2. Chibueze Ogbuagu says:

    Arsene Wenger doesn’t like to spend money…….if Chamakh was a free agent maybe the deal could’ve been done long before now….but cash is the issue here…..Arsene only doles out cash when he’s in tight corners….like now!

  4. Morphy says:

    Action speaks louder than mere conjuctures. Arsen, please sign three quality players tonite. Another central Defender, Adefensive/ attacking Midfilder and an out out attacker.
