Gunners striker set for exit

Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh has admitted he is considering his future at the club.


The Moroccan has been seeing very little football at Emirates Stadium recently due to the form of Robin van Persie.


Arsene Wenger has been unwilling to change his forward line-up after the Gunners have gone on a long unbeaten run in the League.


“I am 27 and I need to play. I cannot stay like this forever. I won't leave in January, but I will take an important decision in June,” said Chamakh.


“I was surprised by the offers I got last summer, but my priority was to stay at Arsenal. A return to France? If so, it will be to Bordeaux.”


The Morocco international has had few first-team opportunities at Arsenal in recent months, playing only in Carling Cup fixtures or late substitution appearances.


This is in stark contrast to when he first arrived at the club as he was Arsene Wenger’s only fit striker and scored seven goals in his first three months at Emirates Stadium.


Chamakh was signed on a free transfer after his contract with Bordeaux ended and it looks as though his former club would be his likely destination should he move.


Increased first-team chances do not look likely as van Persie scored his 33rd goal of the calendar year and his 19th in all competitions this season, against Everton last Saturday.
