There could finally be some good news for Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Daily Star claim that one of their forwards will remain at the club.
Before we have a mass panic on our hands, the forward is Olivier Giroud, not a certain Mr Nicklas Bendtner, and our punters are happy to hear news of the Frenchman staying.
Giroud had been linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium after allegations of an affair reached the tabloids, and our punters did think that after a secret meeting with his agent, he could well be on his way back to France.
Giroud’s agent claimed: “He’s very settled in London and the club is happy with him. I think there is no possibility he might change club.
“At the end of the season we will meet with the Gunners to discuss a contract extension.”
Despite this news – which has gone down well with a round of celebratory beers – Arsenal fans are still keen on getting another forward this summer.
The majority of locals feel that Giroud is in dire need of some support and backup. A world class forward to bang in the goals is high on their wishlist; then again a host of other players are too!
Will Giroud’s decision to stay prove a title winning factor for the Gunners next season? Let us know your thoughts below.
