Chamakh shrugs off Juventus talk

Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh insists he is fully focussed on playing well for the Ligue 1 champions, amid fresh speculation linking him with a move away from France.

The 25-year-old Moroccan international was the subject of one of the longest-running transfer sagas of the summer transfer window, with the striker linked with a string of Premier League sides including Arsenal, West Ham, Sunderland, Spurs, Fulham and Blackburn.

However, Bordeaux remained reluctant to let their prize asset go to anyone other than what they considered a bigger club than themselves, with Arsenal unwilling to meet les Girondins'  valuation of the player, who netted 13 league goals last season.

Fresh reports have since surfaced linking the goal-getter with a move to Juventus next summer, as a possible replacement for David Trezeguet, who is expected to depart Turin after 10 years with the Old Lady.

But Chamakh has shrugged off talk regarding his whereabouts in 12 month's time, insisting he is 100 percent committed to helping Laurent Blanc's side win back-to-back league crowns and progress in the Champions League.

"I am very calm and I am concentrating on playing well in the league and in the Champions League for Bordeaux," he told

"I am not talking about transfers at the moment."
