Bordeaux are interested in re-signing Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh on loan in January but may not be able to finance a deal.
The Moroccan ace has struggled for first-team action this season despite the departure of Robin van Persie as Arsene Wenger has used Olivier Giroud, Lukas Podolski and Gervinho ahead of him, while Theo Walcott is also an option.
The striker's only chances have come in the Capital One Cup and with the prospects of regular action in the future looking slim, a move away would be best for all concerned.
Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud has said a loan move could be an option when the window re-opens but fears the player's wage demands could prove to be a huge stumbling block.
"His salary is very high," he revealed. "We have to talk to the people at Arsenal to see what the terms and conditions for a loan would be. He's a talented boy but the situation is very complicated."
Wenger would like to get him off the wage bill and if some agreement can be reached with Bordeaux then it could free up funds to bring in another signing of his own.
