Arsenal Superstar striker Olivier Giroud has confirmed that he’s seriously considering a winter exit from the North London club, if they will permit him to leave.
The 31-year-old Frenchman, who came off the substitute bench to save his teams blushes at the weekend against Southampton, is seriously hoping to seal a spot in France’s FIFA World Cup team for the upcoming global showpiece in Russia.
However, the battle for a spot in coach Didier Deschamps’ team is fierce and the tactician has already declared that Olivier Giroud would need to be a regular starter if he wants to be on the plane to Russia.
With next year’s global showpiece in Russia looking like the striker’s last opportunity to kick the ball in a FIFA World Cup, he is keen to secure regular first-team action and he is ready to leave the Emirates Stadium to get that.
France international striker Olivier Giroud also stated that he was very close to signing a deal at German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund during the last summer transfer window, but that transfer failed to materialize when the Bundesliga club kept hold of Gabon international striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
