Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal fans can expect further improvements from striker Olivier Giroud as he continues to develop his game.

The 26-year-old France forward has scored 11 goals in all competitions since joining from Montpellier last summer and also has nine assists to his name.

Wenger claims that the striker has already won over the majority of Gunners fans – and the Arsenal boss is backing the front-man to continue to impress for the north Londoners.

“Our fans like Olivier Giroud, because he is a guy who is developing very well,” said Wenger.

“First of all he fights for the team, he has great qualities and charisma. I am convinced there is a lot more to come from Olivier and that he can convince our fans he is the striker they look for.

“It always takes time, but he has scored 11 goals and has many assists. He is strong in the air, defensively and offensively, and overall he has important qualities for the team.”
