Arsenal agree four-year Giroud deal

Published Add your comment

Arsenal have reportedly agreed a deal for Montpellier striker Olivier Giroud and are only waiting until for Euro 2012 to finish before announcing it.

France Football are claiming last year’s Ligue 1 top scorer has decided to join the Gunners and agreed a four-year deal, though the details of the transfer are yet to be revealed.

The report says that the deal to take the France international to Emirates Stadium will be officially announced once the European Championship in Poland and Ukraine has concluded.

Arsene Wenger has been busy recruiting in the attacking department this summer, already having secured the signing of Germany international Lukas Podolski.

The next step for the French tactician will be resolving the issue surrounding Arsenal captain Robin van Persie’s contract and the year left on it.

The Dutchman will at least have more time to think about his future now, as Holland were knocked out of Euro 2012 on Sunday night following a third straight loss, this time 2-1 to Portugal.

Giroud’s 21 goals last season helped take Montpellier to their first ever league title and he was awarded the Golden Boot over PSG’s Nene, who also scored 21, due to fewer of his strikes being penalties.

Other reports have suggested Moroccan flop Marouane Chamakh may be used as a makeweight in the deal, but there has been no indication of this in the France Football report.
