January is near. And the transfer rumors have started appearing from everywhere!
Marouane Chamakh, the £0 signing from Bordeaux, has admitted that he wants out because he can’t remain a bit-part player at Arsenal forever. The Moroccan international, who has made just a handful of appearances this season (mostly as a substitute) told French TV station that he would have an “important decision” to make in the summer and might consider relocating to France.
Speaking to TF1′s Telefoot, Chamakh said:
“I am 27. I need to play. I cannot stay like this forever. If I played more, of course I would have more confidence and score more goals.”
Meanwhile, manager Arsene Wenger has refused to make a move for French playmaker Yoann Gourcuff despite being an ardent admirer of the 25 year old Lyon player. The manager would also give South Korea captain Park Ju-young and Russian Andrey Arshavin the opportunity to impress when Gervinho and Chamakh leave. Wenger told Canal+:
“He is a player I like a lot and I believe people have been very critical towards him in France. However, we won’t be in the winter market for any midfield positions considering that our players are back from injuries.”
