Chamakh Confirms Arsenal Signing - Arsenal Debate - An Arsenal Forum For All Fans 

Breaking News

Arsenal Debate can confirm that Arsene Wenger has already dwelled into the transfer market prior to the season even ending since Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh has today all but confirmed he will be joining Arsenal in the summer. Why Arsenal refuses to publicise such moves is a mystery, yet considering both clubs had immediate commitments to their league and champion’s league campaigns seems to be the obvious answer.

The 26-year-old Morocco international is out of contract at the end of the season and will reportedly move to the Emirates Stadium on a free transfer in June. With Arsenal having problems up front this season following a serious injury to Dutch ace Van Persie, Wenger is thought to have moved to snap up the North African star.

Arsenal Debate gather’s Chamakh decided to leave the French club earlier this year and without doubt positioned Arsenal as his only club of choice.

"I am delighted to join the English football atmosphere, it is something amazing," he told French newspaper L'Equipe.

"I love Arsenal's game. I know I will have to adapt but I know the short passing game. In February, I made my decision. A departure clause (in a potential new Bordeaux contract) was not logical after refusing Arsenal last summer. Arsenal were not alone however, there was Liverpool. Tottenham and crazy offers from Russia, but I was only focused on the Premier League."

Chamakh has been with Les Girondins for 10 years and, while he is looking to the future, admits he will be leaving with a heavy heart.

"For my last matches with Bordeaux I can feel a lot of emotion," he added.

"But I am leaving for a new challenge. At Bordeaux I was the club's child. In London, I won't be a kid anymore.

"I have grown, I have things to prove and I am motivated to achieve it."
