With Arsenal having signed Alexandre Lacazette, the future of Olivier Giroud is a little less clear with the Frenchman faces more competition for a starting place.

Everton are keen to make the centre-forward a regular in their attack and want the £20m-rated man to be their sixth summer signing, reports the Daily Star.

Ronald Koeman has already spent around £100m on Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane, Davy Klaassen, Sandro Ramirez and Henry Onyekuru.

Olivier Giroud signed a new deal with Arsenal last season and has recently spoken out about wanting to stay with the Gunners. But he also hinted that a lack of playing time would lead him to consider his options.

With the ambitious Toffees building a side for a top-four push in the Premier League next season, an Everton move might not be such a big step down from Arsenal.

Under Arsene Wenger last season, the 30-year-old was second choice to Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck and wasn’t expected to be a regular this campaign either.

The arrival of Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette has now certainly confirmed that and may leave Giroud pondering his options.

Arsenal are still believed to be happy to keep the French striker, who last season scored 12 goals in 11 Premier League starts. But interest from sides promising first-team football may turn his head.
