Van Persie-I like the look of Chamakh
Robin Van Persie has only watched Marouane Chamakh on television - but he likes what he has seen.
The Moroccan striker has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal when his contract with Bordeaux expires this summer and Arsène Wenger admitted last week that he was "confident" a deal will be done.
Chamakh could link up with Van Persie at Emirates Stadium and the Dutch forward is excited at the prospect.
"[I know him] just from TV," said Van Persie.
"He looks good, he looks quite strong in the air, he scores lots of goals with his head and he looks quite confident on the ball.
"Hopefully it [the deal] goes through. I think it is good for all of us and that is why I am happy to see him coming here."
