Arsenal misfit set to join Premier League new boys

9. Marouane Chamakh

Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh is set to join Premier League new boys Crystal Palace on loan until the new year, according to the Daily Mirror.

Chamakh has failed to live up to his billing at the Emirates despite making a positive start and is set to get another chance at Premier League football as the Eagles try to replace main man Glenn Murray who is set to be out for at least another six months with a knee injury.

The Moroccan striker spent the second half of last season on loan at West Ham but struggled to kick a ball in anger as Andy Carroll remained fit and filled the striker position.

Chamakh now has a chance to prove his doubters wrong at Palace but once again has competition for places after record signing Dwight Gayle continues to impress in pre-season.

Palace are the bookies favourites to go straight back down to the Championship but Ian Holloway is still looking to add a number of players to his squad before their season kicks off in two weeks time.
