Liverpool join Arsenal in race for Morocco striker

Published Add your comment

Liverpool have entered the race to sign Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh, according to The Times.

Chamakh’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season and can now sign a pre-contract agreement to move in the summer with Liverpool, Arsenal, Sevilla and Inter Milan all interested in the striker.

Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez has identified the Moroccan international as a potential transfer target as he looks to add more firepower to his strike force and lessen the burden put on key striker Fernando Torres.

However, the 25-year-old striker was also a top transfer target in the summer for Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and it seems as if the Gunners’ manager will not give up without a fight.

Chamakh was quoted in The People saying: "Even though Arsenal are pressurising me to join them this month, I will take my time and I am going to finish my season with Bordeaux.

Wenger has stated he wanted to sign Chamakh last summer but insists that he has not agreed any deal and there has been no contact with the player’s agent which could leave the door open for Liverpool to make their move.
