Jamie Vardy Wants To Join Arsenal – Olivier Giroud

Olivier Giroud 29

Reports have emerged claiming that Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is looking forward to the addition of Jamie Vardy from Leicester City.

Giroud, speaking after scoring twice in France’s 3-0 victory over Scotland on Saturday night, says he is excited about the prospect of teaming up with Vardy next season.

Giroud told Sky Sports News HQ : “I have been told that Jamie wants to join us and it’s very good news for us. I think we can be complimentary and that’s all I can say,”.

“He’s a fantastic player, so it’s good news for us.”

When asked if Vardy’s arrival would mean a change in formation from Arsene Wenger’s preferred 4-5-1 set-up, Giroud light-heartedly said: “Obviously four-four-two.”

He added: “As I said in the past I am happy with competition. We have always had fantastic strikers at Arsenal and I want the best for this club. Hopefully he is going to help us win this title.

“The boss wanted to sign at least one or two strikers, so I expected a top striker and I think it will benefit the club and hopefully he is going to score a lot of goals like he did at Leicester.”
