French giants plan £6million Chamakh swoop

Arsenal misfit Marouane Chamakh is a £6million target for big-spending Paris Saint-Germain.
The Morocco striker has been a huge disappointment since joining the Gunners on a free transfer from French side Bordeaux two years ago.
But PSG and Italy's Fiorentina and both keen on the 28-year-old, as are former club Bordeaux.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is planning a clear-out.
Andrey Arshavin’s loan move to Zenit St Petersburg is likely to be made permanent, while Carlos Vela, Denilson and Nicklas Bendtner will be sold.
Keeper Manuel Almunia and defender Sebastian Squillaci will be available on free transfers come the summer.
The departures will help fund a spending spree.
Cologne striker Lukas Podolski has agreed to join in a £10.9m deal and Arsenal are pursuing Ajax defender Jan Vertonghen, 24.
Wenger also wants Blackburn forward Junior Hoilett and Rennes midfielder Yann M’Vila.
