Arsène Wenger has dismissed speculation that he wants to sign Marouane Chamakh.

The 25-year-old Moroccan striker has enjoyed a productive season for Bordeaux in France, scoring 10 goals in 31 appearances. However, he has been linked with a move away from the Ligue 1 leaders.

Arsenal are reportedly among Chamakh’s admirers but Wenger denied any interest at his pre-match press conference.

“Chamakh is a very good player but that does not mean I have called him,” said the manager.
