French side Bordeaux are set to offer Arsenal flop Marouane Chamakh a return to the club in January after the striker joined the Gunners from the club in 2010 and has failed to sparkle since, as reported by Sky Sports News.

In his time the Emirates, Chamakh has struggled to impress and has become nothing more than a reserve player for Arsene Wenger who is set to allow the Moroccan to leave North London in January, but Bordeaux feel the move may not be financially viable.

“Chamakh will always be welcome here,” Bordeaux chairman Jean-Louis Triaud told France Football.

“He left with good memories and he is a talented player with fighting spirit. He is a boy that could inject enthusiasm into our group.

“However, there are a lot of conditions. His preference would be to remain in England and the financial aspect is important.

“Also, who said¬†Arsene Wenger ¬†wants to let him go? Nothing is definite. If it is feasible, we will try to make it happen.”
