Arsenal hope to sell striker to La Liga after disappointing spell at Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal could finally rid themselves of unwanted striker Marouane Chamakh this summer, with the Daily Mail reporting that the Moroccan is a transfer target for Levante UD.
The 29 year-old initially looked a tremendous acquisition when he signed for the Gunners in 2010, and swiftly became the first ever player to score in six consecutive UEFA Champions League matches.
Soon though, he became one of the few players to make a free transfer appear to be a waste of money – along with Joe Cole’s move to Liverpool – and the Moroccan’s £65,000 per week have been quite a drain on the north London club.
Levante are reportedly willing to offer Arsenal £1 million for Chamakh’s signature, which although a low fee is still of course more than the Gunners paid in the first place.
The issue for Levante would likely be the wages, as La Liga club possess less expendable income than Arsenal to pay a player such an exorbitant sum each week.
Whilst fanatix would hate to debunk the Daily Mail’s story, it is worth pointing out that popular Arsenal site ArseBlog claim they invented the link between Chamakh and Levante.
