Marouane Chamakh Refused Liverpool, Spurs to Join Arsenal
It is now an open secret that Bordeaux’s out of contract striker Marouane Chamakh will be joining Arsenal this summer on a free transfer. The Morocco international has recently said that he decided to move to the North London club in February this year. He is now very delighted to take up the new challenge of playing in English Premier League.
Marouane Chamakh, who played for French side Bordeaux for 10 years, said that English clubs Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur were also keen to get his service, but he decided to play for the Gunners. Regarding his stint at Bordeaux, Chamakh said he was the club’s kid, but at Arsenal, he would not be a grown-up player.
Marouane Chamakh helped Bordeaux to win the French League last season and played excellently well in Champions League this season. His arrival is a welcome addition to Gunners forward line up that was badly hit by injury problems this season.
