Bacary Sagna has likened new Arsenal teammate Marouane Chamakh to Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

Chamakh has made a good early impression, the free transfer signing from Bordeaux netting a neat finish against AC Milan.

Sagna said: "He can make the difference because he is a good player, can keep the ball and score great goals.

"It will be very important to have a player like that in front of goal.

"I will trust him with the ball because he can keep it quite easily and it will give us help to come and support him.

"He looks like [Emmanuel] Adebayor - they are both very good in front of goal and it's a good thing for the team."
