With team-mates Olivier Giroud, Lukas Podolski and Gervinho ahead of him in the pecking order, Chamakh has not featured for Arsenal in the Premier League this season.

Although the Frenchman started and scored in the club's thrilling 7-5 win over Reading in a recent Capital One Cup tie, he is likely to continue warming the substitutes bench for Wenger's men. 

Chamakh admitted to RMC that he was disappointed at the lack of opportunities given to him by Wenger, in the wake of star striker Robin van Persie's departure to Manchester United.

"After Robin van Persie left, I thought I'd play more, the competition is always a little hard in a club like that. I expected it. It's [up] to me to prove myself. But, in two [to] three] months If nothing changes, I must make a decision," Chamakh said.

"With the departure of Robin, I’d say that I had a playing card. And if my playing time doesn’t change, I’m not fooled, I’ll go away."

The forward was linked with a return to former club Bordeaux earlier in the summer, but Chamakh revealed his preference to remain in England, should he decide to leave the Emirates Stadium.

"Bordeaux? it could be a solution, if I decide to go. But my priority is to stay at Premier League," Chamakh shared.

Arsenal will play Fulham in their league fixture this Saturday.
