The Moroccan, who has been a revelation up forward for the Gunners in his debut season, says the club captain is a delight to play alongside and has praised his long list of attributes.
"I love to play with Fabregas," Chamakh said. "He is a fantastic kid.
"I didn't really know him before I arrived here. In the few matches we have played together, I have found a player with fantastic talent, great vision and a very rare quality of passing."
"Yohann Gourcuff (at Bordeaux) was superb, but when I see that I play with Nasri, Fabregas, Diaby or the little Wilshere, an adorable kid, I can say that I am very lucky," he added.
