The Moroccan has admitted he is unhappy with his lack of regular action at Arsenal, feeling he may have played more following the departure of Robin van Persie.

Bordeaux have been strongly linked with a move to bring Chamakh back to the club, but the 28-year-old admits his preference is to stay in England if he does decide to leave Arsenal.

"I am still asking the question of a departure or not, weighing up the pros and cons," Chamakh told RMC.

"Bordeaux? In the summer, I didn't have any contact. During last winter, I had some. It could be a solution to come back.

"If I make the decision to come back, it would be no trouble to me, but it is too early to talk about it.

"My priority is to remain in England, but I know if I would have to come back to France, it could only be to Bordeaux."

Chamakh added: "After Robin van Persie left, I thought I'd play more. The competition is always a little hard in a club like that. I expected it. It's (up) to me to prove myself. But, in two, three months, if nothing changes, I must make a decision.

"With the departure of Robin, I'd say that I had a playing card. And if my playing time doesn't change, I'm not fooled, I'll go away."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
