Les Girondins had been desperate to keep Chamakh and chairman Jean-Louis Triaud has already declared him 'untransferable'.
Chamakh, who has previously attracted interest from the likes of Marseille, Internazionale and Ajax, has admitted he would be attracted by a switch to French champions Lyon.
"I want to leave and I can't see me obviously as a Bordeaux player for next season," said Chamakh.
"It is not my style to ask for conditions, but I aim as high as possible. If I have an opportunity, I would like to make another step in France.
"Lyon is a club that would appeal to me. This year, us younger players we didn't say anything, but we have things in our minds."
Carel Meriem, linked with Monaco, has also admitted he could leave.
"It is a possibility to leave to go to a club that would allow me to improve," he said.
One player who wants to remain at The Stade Chaban Delmas is Jean-Claude Darcheville.
"I have thought a lot, and I prefer to stay until the end of my contract," he said.
