Arsenal’s Marouane Chamakh dismisses talk of move to Marseille

The Morocco international has been linked with a move back to Ligue 1, but insists he would only ever sign for former club Bordeaux if he returned to France in his career
Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh has made it clear that there is no truth in the rumours linking him with a move to Marseille.

A number of recent reports suggested coach Didier Deschamps had set his sights on the Morocco international, but the player has stated that Bordeaux are his only option if he is to return to France.

"These rumours [about Marseille] are completely false. If I was thinking about leaving Arsenal again for a French club, it would only be to return to Bordeaux," Chamakh was quoted as saying by RMC.

The 27-year-old joined Arsenal from Bordeaux on a Bosman move in the summer of 2010 and after a positive start, soon lost his starting berth and has since been linked with a move away from the Emirates.

Chamakh currently sits 151st in the Castrol EDGE Rankings.
