Marouane Chamakh is reportedly set to be rescued from his Arsenal nightmare by Spanish outfit Levante who are planning a £1million bid.
Gunners' boss Arsene Wenger swooped to snap up the 29-year-old Moroccan international striker from Bordeaux on a free transfer in summer 2010 and handed him a four-year contract at the Emirates Stadium on around £65,000-a-week.
However, Chamakh has failed to find his feet in the Premier League and having scored seven goals in his first season, he has only made 11 first-team appearances in the league over the past two campaigns and scored just one goal in the process.
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce handed Chamakh a chance to resurrect his career at Upton Park but he failed to score in just three outings for the Hammers last season.
As a result Wenger is now looking to get him off the wage bill as he clears the decks to bring in a host of new faces to try and finally end the club's wait for silverware which stretches back to 2005.
And Levante are believed to be weighing up a move to take Chamakh to Spain in the hope the forward is better suited to the Primera Division.
