Bordeaux chief: No offers for Chamakh

Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud says the Ligue 1 club have received no offers for Moroccan hot-shot Marouane Chamakh, despite reports linking him with a move to the Premier League. The 25-year-old, who has earned 50 caps for his country scoring 15 goals, netted 13 times in Ligue 1 to help secure a first league crown in 10 years for les Girondins. Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Sunderland were all believed to be chasing the highly-rated forward, with Chamakh admitting he would be leaving Bordeaux at the end of the season, only to change his mind following the club's league title success. However, France Football journalist Philippe Auclair reportedly told Talksport earlier this week that Chamakh was on the verge of agreeing a deal with Arsene Wenger's side. But the Ligue 1 champions have moved to quash suggestions that their prize asset is set to leave during the close-season, claiming they have not heard a hoot from the Gunners since meeting to discuss Sylvain Wiltord's move from London back to his homeland in 2001. "That is only chatter," said Triaud. "I don't know where it came from, but I never heard any Arsenal representatives since Wiltord, which means almost eight years."
