Olivier Giroud recently took part in Arsenal’s official Youtube channel’s segment known as ‘Arsenal Albums’, in which the players go through pictures from their footballing past and explain them.
Somewhat surprisingly, the striker revealed that before he joined Montpellier from Tours, he had the chance to join Celtic or Middlesbrough. However, he wanted to stay in France.
He went on to explain how he always wanted to play in the Premier League and Arsenal was his preferred team. Hardly surprising considering he’s French.
It’s a slightly bittersweet video considering that the 30-year-old only has 18 months left on his Arsenal contract.
Hopefully, he chooses to stay.
