Chamakh talks up Arsenal move before scoring for Bordeaux
Marouane Chamakh has again appealed to current club Bordeaux to make his move to Arsenal much easier as the Moroccan grows desperate over the unending transfer saga.
The French champions have demanded double of the reported £7.5 million offer Arsenal tabled for Chamakh. For a player who will be a free-agent within five months, that may exceed his value and the striker himself admits his club is overpricing him.
The Morocco international opened his account for the season yesterday in Bordeaux’s first match of their title defense. (goal can be seen here)
And before impressing on Sunday, Maroune reaffirmed his wish to leave Bordeaux – with Arsenal on top of many destinations he has been linked to.
“My priority is Arsenal, but there are other clubs,” he told Canal Plus.
“If it’s Arsenal, so much the better. I hope it’ll be sorted out very quickly.”
“As much for Bordeaux’s sake as for mine, my situation has to be clarified. I thought they (Bordeaux) would have made things easier for me.”
He added: “I am not sleeping as well as I normally do.
“I made my wishes known to the directors at the end of last season. I expressed a wish to join another league.
