There are a couple of sore heads in the Football Transfer Tavern today after yesterday’s FA Cup triumph, and they all belong to Arsenal fans – and after the latest claim from Metro they may feel even worse.
The publication seem to think that Arsene Wenger is ready to allow forward Olivier Giroud to leave in the summer – and bring in another forward.
As one of our punters notes over a pint, Wenger does need to bring in at least one more forward, but allowing Giroud to leave might not be the answer.
The Frenchman is not exactly a firm fans favourite, but can pop up with goals, and as an option on the bench, he is ideal. Not as a number one forward, granted.
The Gunners have been linked with Alvaro Morata and indeed Karim Benzema, both of whom could well be leaving Real Madrid in the summer.
There have been rumours suggesting Giroud would be willing to leave the Emirates Stadium in the summer and his personal issues have not helped matters this season.
As our landlord reminds us, his wife has reportedly pressured him to move back to France after several indiscretions.
Do you think allowing the forward to leave is a good idea or is Wenger showing he has lost it again? Let us know your thoughts below.
