AS Roma are monitoring Marouane Chamakh's situation at Arsenal.

It's emerged Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is prepared to sell the former Bordeaux striker in January as he's struggled to make an impact in England.

Roma sports chief Walter Sabatini is a big fan of Chamakh and is convinced he would thrive in Italy.

Arsenal can made a quick profit on Chamakh, having signed him on a Bosman less than 18 months ago.
