Chamakh set to be Arsenal's first signing of the season

Monday, May 17, 2010

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger looks set to make his first signing of the season. Reports today suggest Bordeaux striker Maroune Chamakh is set to sign for the Gunners on a free transfer.

Wenger has been a keen admirer of the Moroccan front man for some time, and even had a bid rejected last summer. Now it looks like he will be getting his man for free under the bosman ruling, surely a stroke of genius from the French tactician, showing his interest in the player knowing he wouldn't sign a new contract if the chance to play for Arsenal was a possibility.

However, if they had paid the extra few million for Chamakh last summer, it could have solved some of the problems caused by Van Persie's injury. Well, there is nothing he can do about that now. I don't really know enough about Chamakh to say if he will be a success or not, but Wenger is rarely wrong with these type of signing.
