Arsenal to sell Welbeck to Everton but refuse Giroud transfer?


It is now being reported that Ronald Koeman is not just keen on one of the current Arsenal strike force but two, as the Dutchman is still looking for a player to replace the Belgium international star Romelu Lukaku who completed his transfer from Everton to Old Trafford to play for Manchester United earlier in the summer.

We have been hearing for some time that the Arsenal and France centre forward Olivier Giroud was one of Koeman’s top targets to replace the Belgian and for a while we thought he might get him as Giroud made it clear he did not want another season on the bench and that was before Arsenal signed Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.

A report in The Mirror claims that Everton still want Giroud but if they cannot get him then another Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck will be their next option, with a bid of around £30 million in the pipeline.

So will Arsene Wenger be willing to sell Welbeck? He certainly does not want to let Giroud go but with Alexis Sanchez staying and with Lacazette and Walcott to choose from as well perhaps he would consider selling Welbeck. What do you think to this possible Arsenal transfer deal?
