Bordeaux coach Laurent Blanc insists no offers have arrived for striker Marouane Chamakh.

Arsenal and Sunderland are two of the clubs to have been linked with the Morocco international.

But Blanc, speaking after Bordeaux's 1-0 friendly defeat to Toulouse during which Chamakh played 45 minutes, said: "I am reading a lot of things which are surprising me.

"What I can say is that, at this moment, no offer has come to Bordeaux.

"I hope his case will be sorted out before our departure for Montreal (on July 23, when Bordeaux travel to take part in the Trophee des Champions against Guingamp)."
