According to French outlet RMC, Arsenal will sign Francis Coquelin and Olivier Giroud onto new contracts in the near future with our resident Gunners fans pleased with the news.
The two French stars have been used fairly often this season by Arsene Wenger as the men from the Emirates look to reel in Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table so these new deals should come as a welcome boost.
Coquelin has been a key figure this year in particular with his defensive attributes in midfield.
Many of our local Gunners punters think he has been on top form this season and adds a real defensive steel whilst he’s also done well to see off the challenge of Granit Xhaka so far.
Meanwhile, they also think Olivier Giroud still has plenty to offer their club.
Whilst he hasn’t been a starter this season he has still contributed well when he’s come off of the bench and so they think that kind of option needs to be kept on the books.
Our landlord agrees and thinks Arsenal really do have a good chance of winning the league this season.
