It appears Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh has signed a pre-contract to join Arsenal before the start of next season.
The news was broken yesterday by Sport.co.uk a website which, despite having its fair share of dodgy, provocative articles, tends to be spot on when it comes to transfer stuff.
“Sport.co.uk can confirm, after consultation with sources inside the club, that Arsenal have signed a pre-contract agreement with Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh. According to a source close to negotiations, the contract, thought to be for five years, was signed yesterday afternoon.”
Chamakh is of course free to sign an agreement as his contract with Bordeaux expires at the end of this season.
This is the last I’ll talk about it for a little while but it looks to be a good move for Arsenal and should see us start 2010/11 with another physically strong player up front.
If only we could use him against Liverpool.
