Arsenal striker heading for exit

Marouane Chamakh could be heading for the exit at Arsenal according to the Daily Mirror, with Paris Saint-Germain reportedly considering a £6 million swoop this summer.


Despite a positive start to his Arsenal career when he joined the club in 2010 the Moroccan international has faded badly and has managed just one goal in his 16 appearances for the club this season.


With Robin van Persie and Gervinho ahead of him in the pecking order and the impending arrival of Lukas Podolski likely to limit his first team opportunities even further, the 28-year-old looks set to leave as part of a summer clear out at the Emirates Stadium this summer, according to the paper.


The Daily Mirror reports that Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing the former Bordeaux striker at the end of the season, while his former club and Fiorentina are said to be monitoring the situation should Wenger decided to cash in.

It is also claimed a fee £6 million would be required to secure Chamakh's services, who joined Arsenal on a free transfer after his contract expired with Bordeaux.


Chamakh initially impressed in north London and bagged 11 goals in his first 21 for the club but since December 2010 has added just one strike in his next 39 games.


Last October Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger denied he would be prepared to offload Chamakh at the end of the season, with the Frenchman insisting he would ‘get his chance’ at some point this season.


However with Van Persie in the form of his life there is little chance of the Moroccan getting an extended run in the side with eight Premier League games remaining.


The Gunners have also been knocked out of all three cup competitions they entered this season, further limiting Chamakh’s chances of game time.
