Arsenal's Van Persie welcomes the arrival of Chamakh
Robin van Persie is looking forward to the arrival of Marouane Chamakh as he feels the players will add quality to the Arsenal squad. The Morocco international has been a long-term target for the Gunners, having almost come to Emirates Stadium last summer, and his free transfer move will be officially confirmed once his contact with Bordeaux expires.
"Chamakh looks quite confident on the ball too, so hopefully it goes through as it is good for all of us to have competition. I am happy to see him coming."
