Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits he may "reconsider" a move for Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh when the transfer window re-opens in January.
CHAMAKH STILL ON WENGER'S RADAR
The Gunners were strongly linked with a £10million swoop for the Morocco international before the September 1 deadline.
Chamakh's agent claims Wenger sees the 25-year-old as a potential replacement for Emmanuel Adebayor, who was sold to Manchester City during the summer.
The Arsenal manager said: "He is a player we were close to signing, but at the moment we have lost a little bit of touch with him because there is no transfer period now.
"We might reconsider the position if it is needed in January."
