Chelsea transfer could see Arsenal star seal surprise Premier League move – report
Everton will look to sign Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud as Romelu Lukaklu's replacement this summer, according to reports in the English media
Olivier Giroud could replace Romelu Lukaku at Everton if Chelsea sign the Belgium striker this summer, according to reports in the English media.
The Sun is reporting that Everton are planning a £20m bid to sign the France international from Arsenal should Lukaku leave Goodison Park in the summer transfer window.
The same article states that Toffees boss Ronald Koeman has made signing Giroud his top target should the Belgian striker leave a void in his Everton side.
According to the same story, Giroud is growing increasingly concerned about a lack of first-team football at the Emirates Stadium under Arsene Wenger.
The 30-year-old’s prospects look even more bleak, with France and Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette reportedly closing in on a move to the FA Cup winners this summer.
Giroud has scored 69 times in 164 appearances in the Premier League since his move to the Emirates Stadium in a £10m deal from French side Montpellier in 2012.
The France striker has won three FA Cups and two Community Shield trophies during his five-season stay at the north London club.
