Giroud keen to seal Arsenal move

Monday 25 June 2012

France striker Olivier Giroud has admitted he is excited at the prospect of moving to the Premier League to join Arsenal and hopes to have his transfer from Montpellier wrapped up soon, ESPN has reported.



Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger recently admitted the deal to sign Giroud was almost complete and now the 26-year-old has spoken of the transfer too. He said: “I am so happy to be signing for Arsenal - it is something that represents so much for me. I've always dreamed of playing in the Premier League and Arsenal are a great club with many French players.


Giroud will indeed be in the presence of a number of compatriots, including France international defender Laurent Koscielny, who, like Giroud, was part of Laurent Blanc’s squad for Euro 2012, right-back Bacary Sagna, who was ruled out of the tournament through injury, and midfielder Abou Diaby.


ESPN puts the price Arsenal will pay for Giroud at around £12m. Last season Giroud helped Montpellier to a shock Ligue 1 victory, overcoming the might of defending champions Lille and the oil-financed Paris Saint-Germain, who finished third and second respectively. Giroud ended the season as the league’s top scorer with 25 goals and made his international bow in November 2011, scoring his first France goals a few months later.
