Injury-hit Arsenal ready to try again for Bordeaux striker Chamakh

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to revive his bid for Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh.

The Daily Mail says Wenger admits his concern at failing to score in back-to-back Barclays Premier League defeats by Chelsea and Sunderland following injury to star striker Robin van Persie.

With the Holland international now ruled out for up to five months and Nicklas Bendtner also struggling with a groin strain, Wenger is contemplating adding to his attacking options when the transfer window opens in January.
Chamakh

The Frenchman remains an admirer of Chamakh, but a summer pursuit turned ugly when he refused to bid even half of Bordeaux's £15million asking price and later withdrew his interest because he thought the Morocco international would struggle to get a game at the Emirates Stadium.

The landscape has changed, however, and Chamakh could be available at a knockdown price as he is out of contract in the summer.
