Wenger unsure of Chamakh stay

Gunners boss unhappy with striker's smoking

Marouane Chamakh: Could be heading for the exit door at Arsenal this summer

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits he is unsure if Marouane Chamakh will stay at the club next season.

Chamakh is thought to have infuriated Wenger after he was pictured smoking a shisha pipe following last weekend's defeat to Queens Park Rangers.

The 28-year-old's future at the Emirates has been the subject of speculation for some time, with the player struggling to hold down a regular place in Wenger's starting line-up.

Chamakh, who has scored just one goal this season in 17 appearances, made his last start for the club in the FA Cup win over Leeds in January.

"Will he stay at club next season? It's too early to say. We want him to focus completely - without smoking."

"It's (smoking shisha) not the best thing to do," said Wenger.
