Bordeaux manager Laurent Blanc believes forward Marouane Chamakh could be heading to the Emirates in the next 48 hours. But that is if Arsenal really want him which the coach doesn’t think is the case.

Arsenal really want Chamakh? It is exactly the question that I ask myself and I believe no.

“Frankly, I believe if they really want him, he could join them within 48 hours.

“I would like him to stay. Early last season I told him, when he already wanted to leave for England, ‘Have another good season with us. If you score between 10 and 15 goals, you will be in a strong position to leave for a big club’.

“I gave him my word and I told him I would let him leave. I am keen to respect what I said.”
