In a recent interview, the Moroccan said:
‘I cannot live with this situation forever. I’m 27, I’m a competitor, I want to play, It is absolutely certain that I will not stay that way next season. It’s a shame, because I feel super good here.
‘My priority is to stay in the Premier League. I’ll weigh up the pros and cons because I received many proposals from abroad, but I want to stay in England.’
The 27-year-old seems disappointed to be on the bench and says that he cannot stay there forever. So although he dreamt of a move to Arsenal, Chamakh may be forced to leave the club if the situation doesn’t change for the better.
I have to say that I am disappointed with Chamakh’s performances this season, and although I said during the summer that he should stay, I think I can safely admit that I was wrong and he should leave as soon as possible. I am not a fan of selling players to other English clubs because I feel it gives the player a point to prove when they come back to their former club, but in this case, a move anywhere for Chamakh would benefit both the club and the player.
Chamakh will be unavailable to Arsenal for anything up to six weeks due to the African Cup of Nations and that could put any potential transfer up in the air because of a possible injury. Thankfully it seems Arsenal have dealt with this situation and are very, very close to signing former Gunner Thierry Henry to cover in Chamakh’s absence.
