Olivier Giroud is a curious case. He perplexes, frustrates and amazes – usually all within the course of a match. Today there is a story saying the striker could be the subject of a significant bid from Marseille
BREAKING: Sky sources: Marseille will try to sign Olivier Giroud from Arsenal this summer and are willing to pay up to £20m. More on #SSNHQ

Our Take: While we certainly think he could stick around, selling him brings money for other allocations and would likely mean that Perez and Welbeck would likely be the front rotation which wouldn’t be that bad.
7 April 2017 (Bleacher Report):
It’s no secret our goalkeeping set up requires a review. Petr Cech hasn’t been that good and there always seems to be doubts about David Ospina. Bleacherreport is leading with a story that says Arsenal have an increased interest in Jordan Pickford.

Our Take: Certainly think goalkeeping is going to get the once over this summer, Jordan Pickford could be just one of many we’re linked with

Our Take: I’ve also told my friends I am interested in taking over when Arsene Wenger steps down. See how easy that is. We’ll stop laughing now.
17 February 2017 (Arsenal.com):
During his Friday press conference Wenger gave little inclination as to what his coaching intentions are come the end of the current season. Following the drubbing to Bayern Munich, traditional and social media were rife with stories that the prevailing feeling within the club is that he won’t return when the season ends. David Ornstein on Thursday tweeted:
Arsene Wenger’s future will be decided at end of season. New deal offered earlier still on table but will be mutual decision in summer #AFC

Our Take: Ornstein has continually proven that his information on Arsenal is accurate and we think you have to take for what it’s worth. Nothing will be decided until May.
