Marouane Chamakh is adamant he won't be leaving Arsenal this month.

Bordeaux, Paris Saint-Germain and Fiorentina have all been linked with Chamakh.

"I am relaxed about my future. I've spoken with the coach [Wenger] and I'm staying with Arsenal after the Africa Cup of Nations," Chamakh told the Daily Mirror.

"I think Wenger has confidence in me. It was that reason that I left Bordeaux to join Arsenal.

"I had some good performances in my first season and it's possible that I can repeat those.

"My agents have had calls from other clubs, but I want to show what I can do in the next few months.

"I'm tired of the rumours, because I only want to be focused on my work for Morocco. Personally, I have a lot more in my game and I want to demonstrate my level.

"Of course I want to play more, but it's very difficult for a forward at Arsenal. The level is very high, but that's the challenge that I was looking for."
