Chamakh intends to stay put

Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh has ruled out the possibility of making a January transfer window move to the Premier League.

The coveted Morocco international has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal in the new year after flirting with West Ham United during the summer.

The Gunners are on the lookout for a new striker after losing Robin van Persie to a long-term ankle ligament injury.

However, 25-year-old Chamakh claims he will see out the season with the Ligue 1 champions.

"I'm going to finish my season at Bordeaux," he told France Football.

"Honestly, in my head I don't want to relive what I lived through last summer.

"I don't want to see my name circulating during the transfer window.

"I've had enough of reading or hearing rumours that they are lacking a centre-forward somewhere."
