Marouane Chamakh has been tipped to move to Arsenal after Gunners manager Arsene Wenger sounded out his interest in the Bordeaux striker.
However, Adebayor-less Arsenal's plans to sign Chamakh might be jeopardized by Lyon.
Lyon president recently stated that he would welcome Chamakh with open arms. However, Marouane Chamakh prefers to hug Wenger, as reports suggest the Morocco striker would rather move to England.
Well, it's better to be an Adebayor-less striker than to be a striker-less club. Roma know that and that's why they have their eyes on Roman Pavlyuchenko.
Although Tottenham are yet to receive a bid for their Russian goalscorer (we should drop goalscorer, R-R knows), Roma are keen to sign Roman.
Back in France, Lyon are hoping to sign Wagner Love should Chamakh decide to move to London and play at the Emirates.
Chamakh's move to Arsenal might well give him more of a home feeling than to move to Lyon.
