If reports are to be believed this evening, West Ham are in talks with Arsenal over the loan of Marouane Chamakh until the end of the season.
The Daily Mail (yes, we know) are reporting it while BBC’s David Ornstein said:
Talks held between West Ham & Arsenal over Chamakh. Not done yet, #afc not preparing statement tonight but @LeeClayton_ reliable source #whu
He ‘said’ this on Twitter, obviously. He doesn’t speak in hashtags. That would be silly. The Moroccan striker has been surplus to requirements at the Emirates for some time now, and rarely even makes the bench with Arsene Wenger prefering to select A N Other and Inanimate Carbon Rod ahead of the former Bordeaux man.
A West Ham loan, which would see Arsenal still pay some of his wages, would allow Chamakh to stay in the capital and come the summer should find it easier to make a permanent move away from the club.
Since joining he has made 67 appearances scoring 14 goals.
