WEST HAM'S long battle to sign a new striker hit yet another snag this week when Bordeaux turned down their offer for Moroccan international Marouane Chamakh.

The 25-year-old is desperate to leave the French champions, but approaches by Sunderland, Arsenal and the Hammers have all been knocked back by the Champions League outfit.

The frustrated six foot two inch striker, who scored two goals for his club at the weekend in a 3-2 victory over Sochaux, has gone on record to express his anger with Bordeaux.

He said: "The transfer window is not shut, but I'm pessimistic about my chances.

"West Ham are the latest to come in, but it is only in the past week that they have shown an interest.

"But I am seeing what happened with Arsenal all over again - the problem is Bordeaux, so it is very tricky for me.
