Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud remains hopeful of bringing back Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh.

Triaud is still fuming about the nature of his departure, but both he and boss Francis Gillot would be happy for the 27-year-old to return and are still expecting Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to call them back.

"I did not see Chamakh playing in an Arsenal shirt," Triaud told L'Equipe. "So I told myself 'why not try and sign him back? I talked about it to my entourage and of course the coach.

"I still have a good relationship with the man, but less so with the player, as he annoyed me when he left Les Girondins at the end of his contract.

"Could he be back now? Ask him the question. I am just expecting some good news."
