The Moroccan international striker has not enjoyed a hugely successful time in English football since joining the Gunners on a Bosman transfer in 2010.

Chamakh scored seven Premier League goals in his first campaign, but he barely featured last term.

The 28-year-old is constantly linked with a move away from the club and Triaud admits he can move back to the Stade Chaban Delmas whenever he wants - although wages remain an issue.

"Chamakh? He knows when he wants too, he can return to Bordeaux - but he is happy in London," he told Le 10 Sport.

"I see he 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 your not happy in London, come home, and that message is still relevant today."
