The Arsenal and France international star was apparently right at the top of Ronald Koeman’s transfer wish list in the summer, with some Arsenal transfer rumours claiming that the deal was very close to going through at some stages of the window.
Perhaps if Arsene Wenger had been successful with the attempt to sign his own top target, the young Monaco forward Thomas Lemar, with a massive late bid then Arsenal would have let Giroud go to Merseyside. According to their local paper the Liverpool Echo, the Toffees are going to try again in January once the winter transfer window is open, with Koeman planning to offer about £40 million for our big and powerful centre forward.
If this is true then I think the Dutchman could be more successful the second time around, and not because I believe the Gunners will get Lemar, because I don’t, not in January at least. The reason I think Giroud could be on his way is because another big and powerful front man could be heading to the Emirates.
I am talking, of course about Cavani, the striker who as well as scoring lots of goals for PSG appears to have the unmatched ability to wind up their world record signing Neymar. Most people in the football world ecxpect to see the Uruguayan’s career with the French club come to an end very soon and Arsenal are being linked with his transfer.
Sign him and there will be little room in the Gunners team for Giroud, so will Everton get their man a few months from now?
