It seems that the blazing English sun has started to get to one or two football journalists. Either that or they just fancied making something up to make the Arsenal fans spit their morning cup of tea all over the newspaper.
Olivier Giroud may be waiting with a touch of trepidation to see which new players are signed for Arsenal this summer, but the French striker is fully aware of how important the season coming up is for him, for Arsenal and for his national side France.
