Chamakh set to leave Arsenal


Fresh Arsenal understands that Marouane Chamakh is likely to be excluded from the Asian tour in order to seal a move away from the Emirates. We believe Chamakh has already met clubs regarding a transfer with Galatasary currently leading the chase.

There has been some interest in the Moroccan with Anzhi, Marseille and Dinamo Kiev also linked. A fee is unlikely to be an issue, with the Gunners actively looking to shift the forward, what could cause problems is his current reported £60,000 per-week wages. The 29 year-old’s contract expires next summer.

Chamakh joins the exodus at Arsenal with several first team players finding new clubs in recent weeks, including Mannone’s £2million transfer to Sunderland which was completed today. Niklas Bendtner is next in line whilst Gervinho and Coquelin’s futures remain in the balance.

 More to come.
