Following reports linking Montpellier striker Olivier Giroud with a move to Arsenal, his manager at the French club has revealed that the Gunners are likely to secure the services of the 25-year-old.

Rene Girard is keen to hang on to the player who scored 21 goals as Montpellier won the French title last season, but has conceded Giroud is likely to leave.

“If Arsene Wenger agrees with the president, he will sign for them,” Girard told French radio station RMC.

“Arsenal are very interested and Giroud wants to play in England.”

Marouane Chamakh looks set to be part of any deal, with the French club having expressed an interest in purchasing the Moroccan international.

“We would like Chamakh on loan, as part of the Giroud deal, but I don’t know if it is possible,” Girard added.

It is known that Arsenal are looking to offload the player who has failed to impress at the Emirates.
