Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger plans to sell Marouane Chamakh in January.

The Daily Mail says Wenger is set to axe Chamakh in January - just 18 months after he was billed as one of the most coveted players in Europe.

Arsenal will listen to offers for the Morocco international once the transfer window re-opens after losing patience with the striker.

Wenger has told senior members of his backroom staff that he is ready to sell the striker after losing faith in the 27-year-old.

Chamakh still has two-and-half-years to run on his contract, which is worth in the region of £55,000-per-week.
