Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is highly linked with move away from North-London in January, with his French teammate Alexandre Lacazette taking up his place in starting eleven. Thought, things might change with recent circumstances as injury suffered by Olivier shall tie him up with Arsenal until summer atleast.
Olivier Giroud has reportedly torn his hamstring and can be sidelined up till six weeks. According to reports by Metro, Olivier Giroud can miss upto ten matches and cost Arsenal dearly.
The ultimate aim for 31-year-old would be going with French squad to Russia as first choice heading into FIFA World Cup. At the moment, Lacazette is second choice just before Olivier Giroud but lack of game time would certainly give upper hand for Lacazette to start as first choice for France under Didier Deschamps.
The injury is actually worse than it first looked, and it could cost him atleast ten fixtures out of action, inclusive of three encounters with London counterparts Chelsea.
