The current challenge at Arsenal is not a depth in squad, but a lot of the players contracts are running out and there is need for Wenger and the management to act quickly.
With almost all the players demanding for a huge play rise, Oliver Giroud’s agent has joined the train as he looks to get the best deal possible for his client.
How else do you explain the rumours that he is a hot target for clubs in Serie A for a summer move when he’s starting, on the verge of a new deal and scoring regularly?
The report first appeared in Calciomercato in Italy but didn’t take long to spread. It harks back to the summer when Arsenal allegedly offered the Frenchman in a bid to land either Gonzalo Higuain or Mauro Icardi.
Giroud’s current contract runs until 2018.
He has started Arsenal’s last four games. He’s scored four and assisted two. Averaging a goal or assist every 44 minutes in the League this season (a goal every 73).
