Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will welcome back Marouane Chamakh this week.

The striker has spent the last three weeks away with Morocco at the Africa Cup of Nations but will return to Emirates Stadium after the Atlas Lions made an early exit from the competition.

Speaking ahead of Morocco's clash against Niger on Tuesday, Wenger told Arsenal Player: "Marouane is playing his last game today, then he should be back in 48 hours.

"He played in the first game, and for the second game he was in hospital because he had a stomach bug, but he should play tonight."
