Arsenal striker on loan at West Ham United looks set to finally leave Emirates Stadium this summer.
Arsenal forward Marouane Chamakh could finally end his Emirates Stadium nightmare and depart the club this summer.
The Moroccan striker is one of the few examples of a free transfer proving anything but a bargain.
After a promising start to his Arsenal career in which he became the first player in UEFA Champions League history to score in six consecutive matches, Chamakh’s decline in north London has been remarkable.
His first campaign resulted in 11 goals in 44 appearances, but with only one goal in the following season and two in the current one, Chamakh was sent on loan to West Ham United in January.
He has made three appearances and scored zero goals at Upton Park.
“There will have to be sacrifices because I can not stay like this,” Chamakh told French publication Le 10 Sport.
“If I find an agreement with Bordeaux , why not.
“This is possible because there is a good chance that I will not stay at Arsenal. If I come back to France, it will be in Bordeaux.”
If Chamakh returns to Ligue 1 he appears set on joining his former club FC Girondins de Bordeaux, but could be open to a move outside France.
Arsenal will just be keen to get him off their wage bill.
