Arsenal Striker Set for Bordeaux Return

Marouane Chamakh could see his time at the Emirates short-lived, with ex-club Bordeaux keen on a return for the Morocco international…

Bordeaux president Jean Louis Triaud would welcome the opportunity to re-sign Marouane Chamakh, but the striker is determined to make his mark at Arsenal.

The Morocco international has struggled to make the grade in England since linking up with the Gunners in 2010.

Sources close to the striker say that a deal might be on, which would see the Arsenal front man return to his native Bordeaux. Chamakhh arrived at the Emirates on a free transfer after spending 10 years at the French club, where he notched up an impressive 60 goals in just over 200 appearances for the club.

The Moroccan international has found first team opportunities scarce since his arrival at the North London club, with coach Arsene Wenger opting to play one out-and-out striker, therefore only managing to notch an unimpressive eight goals in 38 appearances for Wenger’s side.

Bordeaux president Jean Louis Truaud admits he would welcome the striker back by stating, “I have spoken with Marouane and told him that he is welcome at Bordeaux and that we still have room for him,” according to French newspaper RMC.

However, Chamakh believes he still has what it takes to prove himself in the Premier League.

“I want to improve my football in England and be a success here,” said the Arsenal Striker.  “Unless the club tell me otherwise, i will fight to establish myself. I have the ability to be a top player in this league,” he continued.
