Wenger refuses to speak to Bordeaux regarding Chamakh

French club Bordeaux admitted that they are interested in bringing Arsenal’s striker Marouane Chamakh back to the club if possible. The Moroccan striker is set to leave the club after he became frustrated with the fact that he doesn’t get too much playing time for The Gunners.

Bordeaux’s president Jean Louis Triaud was quoted by The Mirror acknowledging the French club’s attempts to get a hold of their former striker.

“I’ve left four or five messages with him [Chamakh] in two months. Also tried [Arsenal manager Arsene] Wenger. No response.”

Bordeaux are not the only club interested and it’s possible that this is just one of Wenger’s strategies to get as much as possible out of the deal. With Sevilla on the player’s tail as well, the French manager is sure to stall the talks until a worthy offer comes in for both the club and the player.

Chamakh is currently rated at £6 million after joining on a free from Bordeaux 2 seasons ago. Wenger has already started looking for other solutions for the striker positions, and it seems that German forward Podolski is the top transfer target for Arsenal at the moment.
