Arsenal FC: What Went Wrong for Marouane Chamakh?

What does Arsenal's 28-year-old Moroccan international Marouane Chamakh do in his downtime? Maybe he ponders if he made the right decision to sign with the Gunners. 

Bordeaux president Jean Louis Triaud told Le 10 Sport (via Sky Sports):

I see he [Chamakh] is not on the score sheet and the media do not talk about him but he says nothing.

Salaries are different in England, but last December I sent him a message to tell him that if you're not happy in London, come home, and that message is still relevant today.

If Yoan Gouffran was scoring goals at the same rate as Wissam Ben Yedder, Triaud would think twice before offering an olive branch to Chamakh, who left Bordeaux high and dry. 

This article will delve into Arsène Wenger's pursuit of Chamakh, the Moroccan's early success and what ultimately went wrong for him.
