Arsenal are set to offload Marouane Chamakh to Roma, according to Italian website calciomercato.com, with the striker failing to impress this season.
Chamakh moved to the Emirates on a free transfer from Bordeaux, and Arsene Wenger has given the 27-year-old multiple chances to show his worth on the pitch.
But the star has failed to convert his form into goals, and is now seriously considering requesting to leave the club in January as he searches for more game time.
Arsenal are looking at making some big purchases in the January transfer window, and will be hoping to sell Chamakh to offset their bank balance.
Despite selling Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri last summer for close to £50 million, Arsenal are yet to make a big money marquee signing, and selling Chamakh would free up more cash to allow them to do that.
