Fiorentina chief Daniele Prade insists Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh is not on their radar.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was this week quoted as saying Fiorentina had made an offer for the 28-year-old but Viola sporting director Daniele Prade dismissed that claim and cited the player's wages as one reason they would not be pursuing a deal.

Prade told SportItalia: "Have we made an offer for Chamakh? We have not made one because he earns three million euros (per season)."
