Chamakh contemplating Arsenal future
Moroccan striker Marouane Chamakh
Chamakh has admitted he is unhappy at the Emirates due to a lack of game time, confessing he expected more time on the field with the departure of Robin van Persie from the club.
"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,” he told RMC.
"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."
Ligue 1 outfit Bordeaux has been strongly linked with a move to bring the Moroccan international back to the club, but Chamakh admits he prefers a stay in England.
"I am still asking the question of a departure or not, weighing up the pros and cons," added the 28-year-old.
"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."
