Bordeaux would welcome Marouane Chamakh back with open arms despite the striker walking out on the club for nothing last year.
The French club have been credited with developing their former trainee into one of the most wanted strikers in Europe.
But they received nothing for their hard work when the Moroccan striker agreed to join Arsenal when his contract expired in 2010.
And although chairman Jean-Louis Triaud is still fuming about the nature of his departure both he and boss Francis Gillot would be happy for the 27-year-old to return and are still expecting Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to call them back.
"I did not see Chamakh playing in an Arsenal shirt," Triaud told L'Equipe. "So I told myself 'why not try and sign him back? I talked about it to my entourage and of course the coach.
"I still have a good relationship with the man, but less so with the player, as he annoyed me when he left Les Girondins at the end of his contract.
"Could he be back now? Ask him the question. I am just expecting some good news."
