Arsenal striker Chamakh insists Wenger wants him to stay

Marouane Chamakh insists Arsene Wenger wants him to stay with Arsenal.

With two years of his Gunners contract still to run he has made it clear that he will not allow himself to be forced out this summer.

Chamakh, 28, signed as a free agent from Bordeaux in 2010, insisted: “I’ve spoken to Arsene Wenger and I’m not leaving for now.

“He trusts my work and I’ll still have chances in the first team so I’ll stay.

“I left Bordeaux to improve as a player and I can contribute here.

“My agents have been ordered to reject bids that come from other clubs because I want to prove I can be useful for Arsenal.”
