Arsenal’s CEO Ivan Gazidis and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger have always made it clear the times have changed for the club and we no longer need to sell our best players. And it appears the club is making good it words. According to report, Arsenal have rejected offers from far and near for French international striker Olivier Giroud this summer.
It is widely believed that Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal is searching for new signings in the striking role, which has since fuelled speculations that the French striker could leave the club. The London club has been linked with top strikers like Spanish striker Alvaro Morata and French striker Alexandre Lacazette is thought to be Arsene Wenger’s prime targets.
Oliver Giroud however remains in Arsene Wenger’s plans despite some poor run of form in front of goal for much of last season.
Several enquiries have been made over the availability of the France international, who is expected to be dressed for the European championship final against Portugal this Sunday, according to the Daily Mirror.
While the French international striker may not be the number one striker at the North London club next season, it looks like he will not be sold just yet, with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger perhaps set to yield to Arsenal Legend Thierry Henry’s advice and bring in someone to partner him up front, rather than playing him as a lone front-man.
