Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh has refused to answer questions relating to speculation about his future at the Emirates Stadium.

The 28-year-old is currently on international duty with Morocco and the African Cup of Nations, but there is still plenty of conjecture regarding the security of his place with Arsenal.

Despite a promising start to his Gunners career, Chamakh has failed to live up to expectations in north London, and has scored only once in 15 appearances this season.

It has been claimed that the former Bordeaux forward is a now a target for nouveau-riche Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain, who are willing to pay £10 million to secure his signature.

Chamakh, for his part, remains coy on his future with Arsenal, although admits it is 'painful' to be continually overlooked by Arsene Wenger during his selection process.

"I can’t answer that question," Chamakh told Goal.com when asked if he would remain with Arsenal.

"Naturally it’s painful because it’s my club, but there’s nothing I can do really."

Chamakh joined Arsenal on a free transfer in the summer of 2010 but, after netting 11 goals before the turn of the year, he has scored only twice in the past 14 months.
