Bordeaux coach Laurent Blanc has warned unsettled striker Marouane Chamakh that he should only move to a bigger club.

The 25 year old has been linked with moves to the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham, Sunderland and Blackburn this summer.

"I can understand Marouane wanting to leave, even him wanting to go at any cost, but he must go to a club which merits him," Blanc explained.

"If this is not the case I might refuse his departure. If it does not work out he can stay at Bordeaux, it would not be a jail sentence to stay for another year after which he could have the promise of going elsewhere."
