Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed interest for Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh.

Chamakh's agent claims Wenger sees the 25-year-old as a potential replacement for Emmanuel Adebayor, who was sold to Manchester City during the summer.

The Arsenal manager said: "He is a player we were close to signing, but at the moment we have lost a little bit of touch with him because there is no transfer period now.

"We might reconsider the position if it is needed in January."
