Chamakh is free at the end of the season but, despite reports suggesting he has agreed a deal with Rafa Benitez's Reds, the Morocco international admitted he would prefer to go to the Gunners.
He said: "My choice is to join a Premier League club. If I had a choice, I would go to Arsenal.
"Bordeaux gave me a lot. I will soon clarify things so the club can prepare my successor."
The Sun says Liverpool have offered him a four-year contract worth £3million a season.
