Chamakh insists he's happy with his progress at Arsenal
"It's gone well overall," he told Arsenal Player. "The first year, the first season is about settling in and adapting and there are lots of good strikers around.
"I haven't played as much, what with Van Persie coming back from injury, but for me, it's been a settling in period. It's been good to play for a club like Arsenal and getting used to the league, but I'm trying to learn, enjoy it and long may it continue."
