With only one goal to his name this season, Marouane Chamakh has never really seemed to regain the form that he had when he arrived from Bordeaux on a free transfer back in 2010. A flop is what he’s become now in the eyes of many.
The Sun suggests that the Moroccan will be sold in the summer and with Arsenal’s asking price said to be around £7 million, PSG are rumoured to be interested in the out-of-form striker and are looking undercut the Gunners by £2 million.
So, should Arsenal stick to their guns and hold out for £7 million, or should they just take £5 million and be done with it?
Personally, I feel we should just let him go for £5 million, instead of trying to get an extra two. We really haven’t used him that much this season and it doesn’t look like that is going to change anytime soon.
Despite his desire to play for us, Chamakh hasn’t really been able to show it on the pitch in quite some time. He was the kind of player we needed, a target man, someone to play ahead of Robin van Persie, and use his strength and exceptional heading ability to help us in attack.
I like Chamakh, but if he ever wants to regain a starting role it will take a great deal of hard work between now and the end of the season, or he can just leave and try his luck at some other club.
Chamakh at his best is a fantastic player and seeing him wasted at Arsenal is sad. If he is not in Arsene Wenger’s future plans, then I believe we should let him go for whatever PSG offer, as long as it’s a decent one.
