Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh has denied he has agreed to move to Arsenal in the summer.
The Moroccan international has been widely linked with a move to the Premier League with the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham as well as West Ham and Sunderland showing interest in the pacy centre-forward in the last 12 months.
But reports this week suggested Ligue 1's most coveted star had signed a pre-contract agreement at Arsenal, who were one of the clubs which had a bid for the frontman turned down last summer.
But Chamakh, who has professed his desire to join the Gunners when his contract at the Stade Chaban Delmas expires at the end of the season, insists a deal to move to the Emirates has yet to come into fruition.
"I haven't yet signed at Arsenal," he told French reporters. "But as the days pass I feel less and less a Bordeaux player.
"I've said though that you will be the first ones to know when I sign."
Chamakh was Bordeaux's leading goalscorer with 21 goals last season as he fired them to the French league title.
But the ongoing speculation about his future has hindered the 26-year-old's goalscoring prowess this term with just nine so far this season.
