More to come from Olivier Giroud next season, says Arsene Wenger
Arsene Wenger has been pleased with Olivier Giroud's first season at Arsenal and says there is more to come from him next term
Arsene Wenger insists he has been pleased with Olivier Giroud’s first season at Arsenal – and has told Gunners fans that there is more to come from the striker next term.
The 26-year-old forward, who joined the north Londoners from Montpellier last summer, has scored 17 goals in 45 games in all competitions for Arsenal in his debut campaign in England.
Wenger has been satisfied with the forward’s impact at Emirates Stadium – and expects him to move up a level next season.
“He’s doing very well,” said Wenger. “I believe he has moved forward this season and you will see that next season.
“He is still very young but you can see now that there is more urgency in his game.
“He’s less of a boy than he was a year ago. He is becoming a man. When he comes on, he plays to affect the game and he has the capability to do it.”
Arsenal travel to Fulham on Saturday looking for a win to keep their bid for a top-four finish on track.
