Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hinted that striker Marouane Chamakh faces an uncertain future after being pictured smoking a shish pipe just hours after the defeat to Queens Park Rangers.
The Morocco international has been forced to start a number of games from the bench after struggling to impress Wenger and has scored just one goal in 17 appearances this season.
Chamakh infuriated Wenger after they image was revealed to the press and now it seems it could mean he leaves at the end of the season as Wenger admitted he does not know what his future holds.
"It's (smoking shisha) not the best thing to do," Wenger told Sky Sports. "Will he stay at club next season? It's too early to say. We want him to focus completely - without smoking."
The 28-year-old moved to Arsenal on a free transfer in the summer of 2010 and after making a decent start to life in the Premier League began to struggle in front of goal.
With Arsenal hoping to bring Lukas Podolski to the club in the summer, and with the possibility of Nicklas Bendtner returning from his loan spell, it could mean that Chamakh is no longer part of Wenger's plans.
It is likely that there would be some interest in France where Chamakh first made his name as he impressed for Ligue 1 side Bordeaux.
