The deal was in the pipeline for some time, leading Arsene Wenger to seek attacking alternatives. A month earlier he had turned to Montpellier’s top goal scorer during their first ever Ligue 1 winning campaign, Frenchman Olivier Giroud. “He has a very good physical presence and is exceptional in the air, with a great work ethic,” …
