London, July 4 (ANI): Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has assured that he wont stand in star striker Emmanuel Adebayor's way if he wants to quit the Gunners.
Wenger also revealed that if Adebayor leaves Arsenal, he has a back up in the form of Marouane Chamakh, who currently plays for the French club, Bordeaux.
"If Adebayor does not want to stay, he will leave - although I think he will be still at Arsenal for this season," The Sun quoted Wenger, as saying.
Earlier, AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani had revealed that he had talked to Arsenal about the possibility of signing Adebayor and, it appeared that the Serie A side had stepped up their interest for the Togo international.
Wenger, however, made it clear that Chamakh would only be signed in the event of a departure.
Wenger has been an open admirer of Chamakh's talents. He has been on Arsenal's radar ever since he exploded on the scene in France.
The French-Moroccan star has all the qualities that Wenger likes in his striker, 6ft 2in tall, strong in the air, good close control and a tireless worker. (ANI)
