Olivier Giroud is set to have a meeting with Arsene Wenger to discuss his future at Arsenal.
- Olivier Giroud reaffirms his desire to stay at Arsenal amid exit talks
- Newcastle lodge bid for Giroud
- Giroud has ‘no interest’ in Arsenal stay if they sign two forwards
- Striker seeking assurance from Wenger
Giroud has been unhappy with his lack of playing time this season and despite signing a new deal with the club at the beginning of the year, he could look to move elsewhere if Arsene Wenger doesn’t reassure him that he’ll get more minutes next term.
According to L’Equipe [via Team Talk], Marseille and Lyon are both interested in signing the 30-year-old, who last season scored 12 Premier League goals in 1,194 minutes of football, and therefore he knows he has options to leave if he wants.
The France international will also apparently look to leave if Arsenal bring in two forwards over the summer because he knows that if they do, he’ll never get a look in.
With the 2018 World Cup looming, Giroud will want the best possible chance of getting picked to be France’s main striker.
