Transfer News: Chelsea, Arsenal 'Agree' Deal For Giroud
Olivier Giroud is reportedly set to join Victor Moses and the other big stars at Chelsea as it is understood that an £18 million deal is in the works for the French striker.
Arsenal are inching towards the completion of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s transfer to the Emirates Stadium hence Giroud will need to go elsewhere if he is to get playing time and Chelsea appears to be the next destination.
Aubameyang is at the centre of a transfer merry-go-round involving Michy Batshuayi, Giroud, Arsenal, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund.
The Gunners are understood to have agreed a £55.4million fee for Aubameyang but have had to wait for the Bundesliga side to find a replacement before they get the green light to complete the transfer.
The Daily Telegraph claims that Chelsea are now poised to seal a transfer for Giroud with Batshuayi then free to replace Aubameyang at Dortmund in a loan deal.
Giroud was named on the Arsenal bench for Tuesday's Premier League clash against Swansea City in what could be his last show for the Gunners.
