Arsenal boss Wenger: I told Chamakh I don't need him

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits he's told Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh that he won't be signing him.

The north London giants were strongly linked with the highly-rated Moroccan throughout the summer.

But Wenger revealed: "He's a player I like, but I have too many attackers.

"Frankly, Bordeaux were not very classy towards me, they asked for too much money and I would not pay a lot."

Speaking to L'Equipe magazine, Wenger added: "I even called Chamakh to tell him: 'listen, Eduardo has just come back and I don't want to buy you and play you on the bench.'"
