Arsenal ace Olivier Giroud have fallen down the pecking order with the North-London side, and introduction of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could make things worse for the Frenchman.
With World Cup on its way, Giroud will be looking to get some more game time to travel to Russia as French first choice striker.
Despite of long saga, many reporters claim that Gabon international could be on his way to Emirates before end of this month.
According to Daily Mail, Arsenal would then allow star striker Olivier Giroud to join their London counterparts Chelsea if they meet the valuation of the French international.
BBC sport reporter David Ornstein reports that the deal with Chelsea depends upon wether Aubameyang deal includes Giroud or not.
If Giroud leaves Arsenal, it would be the sixth experienced Arsenal player leaving this season following the paths of Paulista Gabriel, Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain, Francis Coquelin, Theo Walcott and Alexis Sanchez.
Giroud has established himself as ‘fan favourite’ in his time at Arsenal and many supporters wouldn’t like Olivier Giroud leaving Arsenal.
ARSENALCORE’s VIEW: Arsenal have spent atleast £100 million trying to replace Giroud, but no one could get near the 31-year-old does time-in-time-out for the Gunners. Maybe its time to give him his chance or just let him go and regret later.
