Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh is keen to see France midfielder Yoann Gourcuff join him at the Emirates should Cesc Fabregas join Barcelona.

Chamakh sees his former team-mate at Girondins Bordeaux as an ideal recruit for Arsene Wenger to bring into his Gunners side.

"It would be terrific if Gourcuff joined Arsenal," said Chamakh, according to The Sun.

Gourcuff was part of the France squad which performed so embarrassingly at World Cup 2010 this summer, exiting the competition in the first round.

He was sent off in Les Bleus' 2-1 defeat to hosts South Africa in their concluding group game of the tournament.
