If the latest reports are to be believed, North London-based Premiership side Arsenal are ready to let their flop Moroccan striker Marouane Chamakh go after the player failed to make any impact on the team's premiership campaign this season.
Chamakh, 28, has long been touted for a summer transfer out of the Emirates after he failed to comply with the life at the Premiership. However, it is well-known that all roads lead to manager Arsene Wenger who will, in the end, decide upon the future of the player. But according to a Footy Latest report, the boss is currently refusing to either confirm or deny if a deal will happen for the player.
He (Chamakh) did well. Nothing is definite at the moment. At the end of the season, I think you will have big surprises because there will not be a lot of movement in football, Wenger told Arsenal.com when he was asked about the striker's future.
With just one goal in as many as 17 appearances for the club this season, Chamakh has every reason to believe that his time at the Emirates is all but over. Moreover, he will not be surprised if Wenger puts him in the summer transfer list. But Wenger did compliment his little cameo against Stoke City and may look to keep him for another season.
But a lot of Gunners fans will like the Moroccan to depart to make space for someone who can actually score.
Chamakh, who arrived at Arsenal from French Ligue 1 side Bordeaux in 2010 on a free transfer, has made 61 appearances for the Gunners but has only scored 12 times thus far in all competitions.
