Arsenal's Moroccan striker, Marouane Chamakh, is reportedly a target for cash-rich French club Paris St Germain. According to a report in The Sun, the French club is willing to offer Arsenal a fee in the region of £5m, for the front-man's services.

However, Arsenal are reportedly holding out for a £7m fee from PSG. It is believed that the French club's manager, Italian Carlo Ancelotti, has earmarked the striker as part of his plans to reinforce his squad, which is tied for the lead of the French Ligue 1, with Montpellier.

Chamakh transferred to the Gunners in 2010, from PSG's league rivals Bordeaux, on a free transfer. The Moroccan came to Arsenal amid high hopes but has since failed to deliver, in any measure at all.

He has scored only once this season (in a league game against Blackburn) and has found the net a total of 12 times in 60 appearances for the Gunners. In addition, he is believed to be on wages of £60,000 per week; clearly nowhere near enough value for money, particularly with the club desperately in need of a reliable goal scorer to ease the pressure on Robin van Persie.
