Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh has admitted that he would love to play in the Premier League.
“I will reach the end of my contract in 2010,” the 24-year-old Morocco international told L’Equipe.
“I didn’t meet my officials yet. I am open to Bordeaux or anything else.
“In principle, I will not leave for another French club. My objective if I have to leave Les Girondins, is abroad, preferably England.
“Let’s wait for the end of the current season to see if we will play in the UEFA Champions League and if the coach (Laurent Blanc) will stay.
“A London club is always exciting. I like Arsenal, but a club like Tottenham would be wonderful for me too.”
Bordeaux face Chelsea in their next Champions League match and Chamakh has warned the London club that the French side will be out for revenge following their 4-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge in September.
“Our team doesn’t want to give up on the Champions League,” he said.
“Chelsea are probably the best team in the group, but we can be compared to Cluj or Roma. We can get that second position. I give ourselves a 50 per cent chances to get through.
“What we experienced at Chelsea has been really noticed, believe me. We didn’t play there, we were scared.
“It was not us, we played like kids. I have never dared to watch the video of the match again.
“After that game, the Chelsea players said we will finish the group in bottom position. We remember that.
“When they will come at Bordeaux, they will see our real face. We will come on to the pitch to win, we will remember about the first leg. In their home they are great, but away from home it is different.”
