French source Le Figaro is reporting that Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh is open to a move back to Ligue 1 after seeing his Gunners career edge towards it’s end following a woeful spell at the North London club.

The Moroccan international has stated that he would be interested in a move back to Bordeaux and that such a switch could occur in the January transfer window.

The 28 year old forward started his Arsenal career well enough, netting ten goals within the first few months of his free transfer move to the Emirates Stadium after he was handed a first team berth to cover for the then injured Dutchman Robin Van Persie.

However things went from bad to worse as Chamakh’s confidence was shocked to pieces by a lengthy run of poor form that saw the striker scored just twice in 42 appearances, albeit most of these coming from the bench.

Marouane Chamakh has seen a return to form of sorts, scoring twice during Arsenal’s miraculous 7-5 win over Reading last month. A move away from the club is on the cards and one would imagine Arsene Wenger wouldn’t demand all that much from such a sale.
