Arsene Wenger is in search of a striker to replace the departed Emmanuel Adebayor and has talked to Bordeaux’s president regarding the possibility of Chamakh joining Arsenal.
Arsenal fans would feel Arsenal need a holding midfielder or even a centre back more than a striker considering the long list of top quality strikers that Arsenal has despite Emmanuel Adebayor’s departure. But Wenger, it seems, thinks otherwise and is looking for a striker.
This is what Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud had to say:
“Wenger has called me.
“He told me he has a list of forwards and Marouane is one of the names on it.
“However, I expect this could be a complex case which could become a soap opera.”
The last sentence makes one fear this could drag down till the deadline. So hopefully Wenger goes for Huntelaar instead because considering Real are desperately looking to offload him, it shouldn’t take that long and hence Wenger can make moves for some holding midfielders.
