Emirates Stadium forward considering Bordeaux move.
Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh cannot rule out returning to Bordeaux in January.
Chamakh admits he’s mulling over his options ahead of the winter market.
“I will weigh up the pros and cons,” he told Sud Ouest. “If I leave here, I’ll take that possibility into consideration.
“I always said if I had to return to France, it would be with Bordeaux.”
Whilst it’s true that the Moroccan international hasn’t managed to live up to his early form it would be unfair to label the former Bordeaux man a flop, though the 27 year old is continually referred to as such. A move back to Bordeaux may be on the cards though as the striker is keen to get regular first team football and given Robin Van Persie’s form and Arsene Wenger’s preference for playing one up front means Chamakh has little chance of making an impact.
The summer signings of Gervinho and Park Chu-Young must have hit Chamakh’s confidence pretty hard and as such he has failed to get a decent run in the team and a move away may suit all parties, not least as any revenue made from such a sale would be deemed a bonus as the striker arrived on a free transfer 18 months ago.
