Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh could be set to leave Arsenal on permanent deals in the next 48 hours.

Gervinho, 26, is understood to be on the verge of a move to AS Roma, while Chamakh, 29, has been linked with Premier League new-boys Crystal Palace.

“[With] Gervinho, we are at the moment close to an agreement with a club where he should go,” said Wenger.

“Chamakh might go somewhere, it will be decided in the next 48 hours. [They are] permanent moves.”

The Frenchman also confirmed that Nicklas Bendtner remains an Arsenal player and that he is not currently set to join another club.

The 25-year-old Denmark international spent last season on loan to Serie A side Juventus, where he made 10 appearances in all competitions.

Wenger added: “With Bendtner we are nowhere. At the moment he is completely here.”

And when asked if Bacary Sagna was close to agreeing a new deal with the Gunners, Wenger replied: “We will try to extend Bacary Sagna’s contract but we are not close to an agreement.”
