Marouane Chamakh threatens that he will leave Arsenal in January if he does not get to play enough for the first team.

Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh has revealed that he will leave in January if he does not get enough playing time.

The 28-year-old has yet to make an appearance in either the Premier League or the Champions League for the Gunners this season.

"After Robin van Persie left, I thought I'd play more," he told French radio station RMC. "The competition is always a little hard in a club like that. I expected it.

"It's [up] to me to prove myself. But, in two [to] three months if nothing changes, then I must make a decision.

"With the departure of Robin, I'd say that I had a playing card. And if my playing time doesn't change, I'm not fooled, I'll go away."

Chamakh added that he could rejoin his old club Bordeaux.

"Bordeaux? It could be a solution if I decide to go," he said. "But my priority is to stay in the Premier League."

Chamakh joined Arsenal from Bordeaux in 2010.
