La Liga outfit Levante are monitoring the situation of Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh, after the striker's disappointing spell in England.
Despite a promising start with Arsenal, Chamakh has struggled to oust the likes of Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski from the Arsenal starting XI last season. In his first season in England following his transfer from Bordeaux in 2010, Chamakh made 43 appearances for Arsene Wenger's side, scoring eight goals. But in the two seasons that have followed, the Moroccan international has struggled to regain this form, making only 23 appearances in the next two seasons.
Because of this, Chamakh went out on-loan to Sam Allardyce's West Ham United in the January of 2013 in an attempt to break back into the Arsenal first team. However, he struggled to impress at Upton Park, making only three appearances and failing to score during his two month stay there.
TalkSport have reported that as well as Levante, Real Betis are also tracking the movements of Chamakh, whose future has become increasingly unclear at the Emirates following the speculation linking Gonzalo Higuain with a move the Arsenal this summer.
This signing would push Chamakh further down the pecking order, and would make him increasingly unlikely to remain at the club. Levante are looking for a well-respected striker to build on their 11th place La Liga finish last season.
Manager of Levante Joaquin Caparros is also thought to be tracking former Wigan Athletic striker Franco Di Santo, following his summer release this season.
