Chamakh 'needs' more game time with Arsenal

Marouane Chamakh has hinted that he may have to leave Arsenal soon if he continues to miss out on regular first team football.

The Morocco international has made just six Premier League appearances (one start) so far this season and feels he needs to be playing more consistently if he is to remain in North London.

"I am 27. I need to play. I cannot stay like this forever," Chamakh told French TV station TF1's Telefoot.

"If I played more, of course I would have more confidence and score more goals."

Chamakh enjoyed a swift start to his Arsenal career following his arrival from Bordeaux in the summer of 2010 but has struggled to maintain that form with just one league goal since the end of November of that year.
