Bordeaux striker Chamakh: I rejected Liverpool, Spurs to join Arsenal

Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh has revealed he's agreed to join Arsenal on a Bosman transfer.

Chamakh, 26, hinted in an interview with L'Equipe at a move to the Premier League in the close season.

The Morocco international said: "There were approaches from Liverpool, Tottenham and offers of madness from Russia which were much greater than those from England. But, I was focused on playing in the Premier League.

"I count the days, 11 short days. As time passes, it feels weird. I feel many emotions."
