Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh insists he is living out a dream by playing at his favourite club.

The 26-year old French-born Morocco international has settled well in North London and admits he is loving his time playing for the Gunners.

Chamakh, who has scored three times in the league and three in the Champions League so far this term, admits he is now at the club of his life.

“I’m at the club of my life,” said Chamakh. “I don’t want to see too far ahead in football. I’ll go to the end of my contract.

“That leaves me four ­ good years. I played in my favourite club in France (Bordeaux). I’m playing now in the club I’ve loved since I was small.

“For others, it’s Real or Barca. For me, it was always Arsenal.

“You can see that I finish each match completely used up. I take an awful lot of knocks.

“It’s difficult, so I want to take an enormous amount of pleasure during four years. I’m proud to be a Gunner.

“At the moment it’s nothing but pleasure. Everything is exactly as I thought it was.”
