Chamakh eyes England move

Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh will decide about his future at the end of the season and has voiced his interest in moving to the Premier League.

Chamakh has scored 10 goals this season for Bordeaux, who sit two points behind Ligue 1 leaders Marseille.

“My contract ends in one year and I’d like to leave with a French championship title with Bordeaux,” the 25-year-old told L’Equipe.

“If I leave it’ll be abroad or nothing.

“Before talking to the interested clubs, I first want to talk with Bordeaux. It’s my team and where I was trained so that’s normal.

“I am going to give the priority to England. That’s the league I appreciate the most.

“Even if I would give everything to play for teams such as Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal, I don’t dream. I am not crazy.

“If I manage to join a team like these ones, it would be a miracle.

“I am not greedy but I rather aim for a club which sits just below the ’big four’.

“To be clear, a team like Tottenham could interest me but not Sunderland.”

Arsenal, Spurs, Liverpool and Newcastle have been linked with Chamakh over the past few months.
