Christophe Dugarry claims that Olivier Giroud has no interest in staying at Arsenal if the club sign two new forwards.
- Giroud reaffirms his desire to stay at Arsenal amid exit talk
- Olivier Giroud stats label him as Premier League super-sub of the season
- Striker played just 1,780 minutes over all competitions this season
- Dugarry claims Giroud will leave Arsenal if Wenger signs two new forwards
The former France international claims that Giroud, who’s been linked with a move to Marseille this summer, will look to move if Arsenal sign more than one new forward during the transfer window, saying, “Olivier Giroud, if two strikers sign to Arsenal, he has no interest to stay.”
Despite his phenomenal stats, Giroud has struggled for game time this season behind an on-fire Alexis Sanchez and while the 30-year-old only signed a new contract with the Gunners at the beginning of this year, the big guy’s desperate for more minutes.
Arsenal are reportedly in the market for a couple of strikers this summer, including Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette and Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe, and if the Gunners are successful, it’ll be even harder for Giroud to get game time.
Therefore, while Arsenal could land a couple of fantastic forwards, they could lose two in Giroud and Alexis.
