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.
