Chamakh begs Bordeaux to let him go

PARIS - Marouane Chamakh has accused French champions Girondins Bordeaux of asking for too much money from English side Arsenal, who have expressed an interest in the Morocco striker.

"Going to Arsenal is my dream," Chamakh told Monday's issue of French sports daily L'Equipe.

"I am at the end of my contract and the club want to turn this into a money issue. What the club are asking for is not fair."

Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud confirmed Arsenal had bid for the 25-year-old but said the London club's offer was insufficient.
