TRANSFER ALERT! Arsenal star wanted by Italian giants in shock deal

first_img1 Olivier Giroud in action for Arsenal Juventus are lining up a shock move for Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud, claim reports in Italy.The Italian champions have made signing a striker their top priority this summer and will approach Arsenal about Giroud’s availability should they fail to land their number one target Edinson Cavani.Juve face competition from Chelsea for the Paris Saint-Germain striker and the French club will only be interesting in sanctioning a deal that includes Paul Pogba coming to the Parc des Princes. So now, according to Tuttosport, Juventus are exploring other options and are eyeing up an approach for Giroud.Despite going through an inconsistent spell recently, Giroud is still Arsenal’s leading goalscorer this season with 20 goals and remains a key figure at the club.But the French international has managed just two league goals in 2016 and is now second choice behind Danny Welbeck.Giroud’s contract with the Gunners expires in 2018 and Arsenal are unlikely to enter negotiations with any club unless they receive an offer in excess of £30m.last_img
