The Moroccan striker has been very much out of sorts at the Emirates, besides his first season at the club, and will be looking to prove his worth after many below par performances.
He said on the situation:
I am relaxed about my future. I’ve spoken with the coach [Wenger] and I’m staying with Arsenal after the Africa Cup of Nations.
I think Wenger has confidence in me. It was that reason that I left Bordeaux to join Arsenal.
I had some good performances in my first season and it’s possible that I can repeat those.
My agents have had calls from other clubs, but I want to show what I can do in the next few months.
I’m tired of the rumours, because I only want to be focused on my work for Morocco. Personally, I have a lot more in my game and I want to demonstrate my level.
Of course I want to play more, but it’s very difficult for a forward at Arsenal. The level is very high, but that’s the challenge that I was looking for.
Chamakh has a very important six months or so ahead of him. After failing to impress in many recent performances, there is no doubt he will have to up his game in order to remain at the Emirates beyond the end of season transfer window. What do you guys think? Feel free to leave a comment below!
