Marouane Chamakh still hopes for a chance to prove himself at Arsenal.

Days before a snap emerged of him smoking a Shisha pipe, Chamakh declared he wanted to stay.

"Am I going back to Bordeaux? For now, no. I have spoken to Wenger and I will stay at Arsenal. I think he trusts my work and I will have opportunities in the first team," he told Onze.

"I left Bordeaux to improve as a player and I think I can continue for this club. My agents have been ordered to reject bids that come from other clubs because I want to prove I can be useful for the Gunners."

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is furious with the photo and could fine Chamakh for his actions.
