Marouane Chamakh admits he cannot remain a bit-part player with Arsenal "forever" and is hoping to get more chances to impress at Emirates Stadium.

The Morocco forward was a hit in his early days with the Gunners following a free transfer from Bordeaux, and scored 11 goals in his first season. However, given the prolific form of captain Robin van Persie, the 27-year-old has now found chances limited - with just one start in the Barclays Premier League this term.

Chamakh, who along with Arsenal's Ivory Coast forward Gervinho, is set to head to the African Nations Cup in January, told French TV station TF1's Telefoot: "I am 27. I need to play. I cannot stay like this forever. If I played more, of course I would have more confidence and score more goals."
