If reports on Twitter are anything to go by, Newcastle United are rumoured to have tabled a £22m bid to sign Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud this summer.
The newly-promoted side are desperate to bolster their side for the upcoming season to avoid relegation battle next season.
Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez is interested in the unsettled star who is desperate to have first team action next season having fallen down the pecking order at Arsenal.
Giroud has reportedly had two meetings with manager Arsene Wenger over his future as Marseille and Lyon consider a summer transfer window move for him.
He has since netted 98 goals in 226 games for Arsenal, and set up Aaron Ramsey’s winner in the FA Cup final at the weekend.
I doubt if Arsenal will be willing to sell him as he recently not long ago signed a new deal at Arsenal.
