Moroccan striker Marouane Chamakh has declared that he wants to stay at Arsenal despite rumoured interest from the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Bordeaux.
Chamakh's former club Bordeaux made it clear earlier in the week that they wanted to resign the striker who has struggled to make an impact in north London.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has preferred to use Robin van Persie and Gervinho so far this season with Chamakh forced to sit out a number of matches on the bench.
The striker scored seven league goals in his 29 appearances last season but has made it clear that he is determined to fight for his place in the Arsenal first team.
"I haven't played as much, what with Van Persie coming back from injury, but for me, it's been a settling in period," Chamakh revealed to Arsenal.com.
"It's been good to play for a club like Arsenal and getting used to the league, but I'm trying to learn, enjoy it and long may it continue."
The 27-year-old has made just one start this season but with Nicklas Bendtner and Carlos Vela currently out on-loan Arsenal do not want to lose the forward.
