Bordeaux have ruled out in-demand striker Marouane Chamakh leaving in January.
The French-born Morocco international was linked with Arsenal and West Ham in the summer, but a move failed to materialise.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger recently stated he could revive his interest in the striker in the New Year, comments that have not sat well with Bordeaux.
Their president Jean-Louis Triaud insists the club are unwilling to do business for the 25-year-old in January regardless of the fact that he is out of contract in the summer.
"We're not going to let him go in January!" said Triaud. "He's an important player for us and he lifts everyone up."
