President Admits He’s Spoken With Arsenal Striker About Potential Move

By on April 11, 2012


Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh could be on his way out of the club this summer after Bordeaux president Jean Louis Triaud admitted he has spoken with the player about a potential return, according to Sky Sports News.

Chamakh spent eight years at Bordeaux and played over 200 games for the club before joining the Gunners on a free transfer in 2010. After a promising start to his career at the Emirates, he has quickly fallen down the pecking order and has struggled to get playing time this season.


This lack of action has lead to suggestions he could be set for a return to France this summer and Triaud has admitted he would jump at the chance to re-sign the Moroccan striker, but thinks the players salary demands and the transfer fee required may prove to be a stumbling block.

Triaud is quoted on Sky Sports News as saying:

“I have spoken with Marouane and told him that he is welcome at Bordeaux and that we still have room for him,”

“The main problem will be financial because he has tasted the salaries in England and Arsenal will ask for a fee.

“Chamakh has told me that if he was to return to France, it would be at Bordeaux.”
