Chamakh - No Arsenal Contact Yet

Chamakh - No Arsenal Contact Yet

Arsenal target, Marouane Chamakh, says he would love to move to the Premier League, but despite offers from a number of clubs (of course Spurs are one of them), Arsenal are yet to make contact ..... despite Arsene Wenger claiming to be keeping tabs on the Moroccan centre forward.

The Arsenal gaffer had previously made out of character comments about bringing the striker to the club should Emmanuel Adebayor depart for pastures new.

With Adebayor signing for Manchester City of the weekend, the transfer seemingly paved the way for this latest rumour to come to pass.

However the target says no offer from the Gunners has been forthcoming.

'I want a new challenge, I have a weakness for the English league,' Chamakh told L'Equipe.

'My dearest wish is to leave Bordeaux. I have repeated it for several months and I hope my officials will listen to my wish. With my agent, we have agreed terms with several English clubs that are keen to sign me. They are just waiting for my decision.'

'They are notably Sunderland, Blackburn, Tottenham and Fulham. Arsenal? I don't really believe in it anymore. My officials have not received any offer so far.'

I was quite surprised when Le Boss mentioned Chamakh by name, it was quite out of character, so either Wenger has decided that what's good for the goose is good for the gander and joined in the tapping up party, or he might be trying to throw other clubs off his true scent.

Only time will tell.

If you're going to spend it Arsene, do it on a midfield general!

I would imagine thaty once the John Terry business is laid to rest then City will come calling for Kolo. If they offer £12m - £15m they are welcome to him. For me, he doesn't have the brain to defend properly.

Hmmm. That would be an interesting one. It would be a big shift in the dynamic of the squad if he left IMO.

Tend to agree with Cockney that he lacks defensive nous.

I wouldn't sell Toure... what he needs is a partner with a style different to his own! He looked good for ages with Swiss Tony beside him!

Don't get me wrong, I like Kolo. My problem is that he needs a defensive partner to talk him through the game. For a player with his number of appearances,and all the experience it brings,that shouldn't be the case.

If we sell Toure and swap Senderos with Hangeland, nobody would be bothered.

I would prefer Gallas as a senior partner to bring on Vermaleen/Djourou for those reasons re defensive nous.

hughies, if we let Kilo go, I hope we sign Gallas up to an extended contract as this season is his last the way things stand.
