Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he is still interested in Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh. The Gunners have been linked with a £7 million bid for the Moroccan international to replace Emmanuel Adebayor, with the towering Togolese target-man having joined Manchester City. However, according to the player, it is Arsenal's arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur, as well as Sunderland, Blackburn and Fulham, that have agreed terms with the forward - who has scored 15 goals for his country - with Chamakh admitting he had all-but given up hope of a dream move to the Emirates Stadium. But Wenger has now revealed that he is still keeping an eye on the situation regarding the in-demand 25-year-old. "We keep an eye on him," Wenger told Arsenal's official website. "He is one of the players that we will follow and if we went for a striker then he would be one of the possibilities."
