Atletico and Bayern join Arsenal in chase for Olivier Giroud

The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger might face even further problems in his attempt to sign Montpellier’s striker Olivier Giroud, as Atletico Madrid seem to have grown an interest in him.

It was tough enough for Wenger to have to fight with German side Bayern Munich for his services, given the fact that Arsenal haven’t managed to win a trophy in over 7 seasons, while the Bundesliga side are playing against Chelsea in the Champions League final.

Now Wenger will also have to fend off interest from Spanish side Atletico, as the Europa League winners are interested in enhancing their squad even further for next season’s run.

Arsene Wenger has been searching high and wide for a top target man who he can bring to the squad, especially given the fact that captain Robin Van Persie’s situation is still very much unknown. Podolski already joined, but he’s not quite a target man and Wenger doesn’t want to risk being left uncovered like last season when Nasri and Fabregas both left on short notice.

Giroud has impressed in the last two seasons of the French Ligue 1 scoring a bucket load of goals for Montpellier and bringing the French side to their first title in the history.

  1. no matter his decision rvp needs to make his mind quickly for arsenal sake otherwise all really good targets to replace him would have been snapped up!!

    1. i think wenger needs to bring out money this time around in order to buy stars n stop playing with the emotions of arsenal fans. we are tired of not celebrating silver wares

  2. gervinho had also heiped lille to win cup double after 57 years but he is average so this guy smells like gervinho and chamakh to me , so i don’t think he will improve us and
    compell van persi to sign new contract extension
    buy another players like oscar cardozo , radamal falcao ,
    edison cavani , and bring thierry henry in a permanent deal
    and he will provide us experience and heip our youngsters………………COYG……………we just need a very good midfielder to replace ramsey…………trust me then we are gonna rock next seasons…………………
