Arsenal are reportedly ready to offer flop Marouane Chamakh in an exchange deal for free-scoring Olivier Giroud.


A report on French website RMC claims that Arsene Wenger could consider swapping the Moroccan striker and €8million to bring the Montpellier star to Emirates Stadium.


The Gunners’ interest will have been piqued by Giroud becoming joint top scorer in Ligue 1 last season as his side won their first ever championship and he is expected to break into the France squad for Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.


Bayern Munich have also been named as interested party in a player who has a reported release clause in his contract worth €16million.


The report suggests a move for Giroud could be made if captain Robin van Persie decides to reject a new contract offer from the club and decides to leave.


Alternatively, it could be another move, after the early signing of Lukas Podolski, to prove the club’s ambition and try to convince Van Persie to renew his deal in north London.
