Chamakh happy he chose Arsenal

Marouane Chamakh is delighted with his decision to join Arsenal in the summer.

Chamakh had offers from other clubs prior to his move to Arsenal, but he insists Arsenal was always his first choice and the chance to work with Arsene Wenger was too good to turn down.

"There were other offers, but the fact I loved Arsenal since I was young made my decision easy," Chamakh told at an event promoting EA SPORTS FIFA 11.

"Arsene Wenger also had a major influence in my decision to join Arsenal.

"I am extremely happy with my choice and I am surprised how well it has started for me.

"I have settled very well on and off the pitch and I have been made very welcome by everyone at the club."
