Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud is keen to bring back Morocco striker Marouane Chamakh back to France from a disappointing stint at Arsenal. Triaud claims he has been attempting to contact both the player and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, but with no success.

"In the last two months I have been leaving messages with Marouane. I also left messages with Arsene Wenger but I got no answer," said Triaud.

"His silence shows probably that he still hopes he will make it at Arsenal."

The 27 year old left Bordeaux in 2010 to join Arsenal after helping the club, where he started his professional career, win the French title in 2009.
