Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh has hinted he will be joining Arsenal in the summer.

The Morocco international is expected to join Arsenal on a Bosman in June, though nothing has been confirmed.

Chamakh told L'Equipe: "Do I already have Arsenal on my mind? A little, but our end of the season is so important that I can't plan for life after Bordeaux.

"I took a risk by not prolonging my contract because could get injured at any moment. It is the first time I will be a free agent.

"If I extended a transfer clause, everyone could take advantage of it. But the situation is much more complex. I take on my choice."
