The Bosman signing from Bordeaux has already made his friendly debut for the Gunners.
"I love scoring goals and it is my job but I am not obsessed with it," said Chamakh, who racked up 79 goals in 293 games for Bordeaux.
"I am not what you would call a very selfish striker. I am very collective in my game. I love playing for the team, helping make other people shine too," he added in this month's Official Arsenal Magazine.
On one of Chamakh's first visits to Arsenal's training ground in Hertfordshire, a framed picture caught his eye. It showed the 2003-04 'Invincibles' lifting the Premier League trophy and a board detailing their 38-game unbeaten run.
"What a team,' he said. 'Amazing. Look at all the goals Henry scored that season. I still cannot believe they did it."
