Olivier Giroud : Arsenal News
“The Gunners are still active in the market as they in need of a defensive midfielder, a goalkeeper and a striker to compete with Olivier Giroud.”
 hamrofootball.com  2 days ago
“It’s hard to complain too much about Arsenal’s signings so far this summer, but the club are so close to success. Last season the lack of an alternative to Olivier Giroud cost them, it would be criminal to allow it to happen again.”
 Sabotage Times  3 days ago
“But with Yaya Sanogo unlikely to be considered ready for regular action and Lukas Podolski not trusted to lead the line, it would leave Giroud as Arsenal's only out-and-out striker unless Joel Campbell can convince Wenger he can provide competition.”
 The Daily Express  7 days ago
“Secondly was the team Arsenal fielded. With Yaya Sanogo injured along with Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez and Lukas Podolski all allowed extra time to rest their weary World Cup bones Chuba Akpom was the only recognised striker in the squad.”
 Here Is The City  Today
“Arsenal went down 1-0 to the MLS side in the early hours their lack of reliable experienced cover for Olivier Giroud.”
 Daily Mail  Today
“Arsenal have signed Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina from striker Bradley Wright-Phillips poked home from Henry's corner. Wenger said: "We had no Olivier Giroud, no Theo Walcott, no Alexis Sanchez and no Lukas Podolski.”
 BBC  Today
“Many Arsenal fans are screaming out for another forward to come in and challenge Olivier Giroud, a player whom, despite his 22 goals and nine assists last season, many see as not good enough.”
 Metro  Today
“A lot of Arsenal fans forget that one of the biggest issues we faced Lukas Podolski couldn’t step into the central striking position to alleviate Olivier Giroud’s workload. When Aaron Ramsey picked up an injury, no one could step up to the plate.”
