Arsenal have asked chief scout Giles Grimandi to report on Montepellier striker Oliver Giroud, according to The Daily Mail.

The 25-year-old has scored 18 domestic goals for the Ligue 1 leaders, catching the eye throughout Europe.

Arsenal are understood to be one of those interested in a potential deal for a player said to be worth in the region of €50 million.

Prolific in Ligue 2 with Tours, Giroud won a move to the top flight in the summer of 2010, scoring 12 goals in his debut season.

And such has been his form that Arsenal are looking into scouting Giroud, ahead of a potential bid for the player in the summer transfer window.

A report in Giroud could originate from fears over his ability to transfer his form from French football into the Premier League.

Both Bayern Munich and Juventus are also said to be interested in the player, whose reported valuation is way above the understood release clause of €13 million.
