Bordeaux's Morocco international striker Marouane Chamakh has dropped another major hint that he will be playing his football at Arsenal next season.
The 26-year-old has been linked with a move to England for some time, with Liverpool having rivalled the Gunners for Chamakh's signature, with the frontman having rejected a new deal with the French champions.
He told L'Equipe: "Do I already have Arsenal on my mind? A little, but our end of the season is so important that I can't plan for life after Bordeaux.
"I took a risk by not prolonging my contract because I could get injured at any moment. It is the first time I will be a free agent.
"If I extended a transfer clause, everyone could take advantage of it. But the situation is much more complex. I take on my choice."
Chamakh has helped Les Girondins reach the Champions League quarter-finals this season, while they are also top of the Ligue 1 table this term.
