Chamakh: I'm staying at Arsenal
Marouane Chamakh has stressed he sees his future at Arsenal despite increasing speculation that he will be sold in the summer.
After a bright start to his Arsenal career, having joined from Bordeaux on a free transfer in 2010, Chamakh has struggled for form, scoring just once this season.
And, after a photograph of him holding a shisha pipe emerged in Tuesday's press, it has been suggested Arsene Wenger could look to offload the forward.
However, Chamakh told French magazine Onze: "Am I going back to Bordeaux? For now, no. I have spoken to Wenger and I will stay at Arsenal. I think he trusts my work and I will have opportunities in the first team.
"I left Bordeaux to improve as a player and I think I can continue for this club. My agents have been ordered to reject bids that come from other clubs because I want to prove I can be useful for the Gunners."
