Arsenal eye Olivier Giroud’s replacement


Arsenal are now struggling in the Premier League, currently on fourth spot. The Gunners were the title challengers in the first half of the season but the New Year took their dreams and hopes.

Giroud has been the leading the striker for Arsenal for the past few years but has not impressed enough. He has scored only 12 goals in the Premier League so far.

Arsenalmanager Arsene Wenger is currently keeping tabs on Dortmund star striker Aubameyang and Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski. However, the Frenchman would go for Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema if he fails to seal both of the above striker.

Benzema has been linked with Arsenal for the past two years but has not decided to leave Santiago Bernabue. At the moment, he is focusing on Real Madrid as they can win Champions League as well as La Liga.

Benzema is currently suspended from the France international side because of his involvement in blackmailing group and would not be taking part in the coming European Champions this summer.
