Football News: Olivier Giroud France

According to Sky Sports sources Arsenal have reached an agreement with Montpellier for striker Olivier Giroud.

It is understood that Arsenal have agreed to meet the release clause in Giroud’s Montpellier contract, which has variously been reported to be between €12 million and €16m (£9.6-£12.8m).

Arsenal were given the green light to sign the 25-year-old, who is part of Laurent Blanc`s squad at the tournament in Poland and Ukraine, last week by Montpellier after Giroud signalled that he wanted to move to north London.

Giroud, who has two years remaining on his Montpellier contract, has agreed a £50,000-a-week four-year deal, which will treble his current wages of around £15,000-a-week.

If this is indeed the case and I reckon it is Giroud will become Arsenal’s second signing of the close season after Lukas Podolski once the deal is completed.

However news has come out from Montpellier suggesting that a 13 million pound deal has been agreed which could also see out of favour Chamakh making the switch back to French football.

Following hot on the heels of the nice and early deal for Podolski this could finally be the Summer that Gunners have been longing for….
