Arsenal lead chase for Montpellier star

Giroud has been linked with moves to a host of clubs this summer.

The 25-year-old scored 25 goals for Montpellier last season.

“Arsenal are very interested and Giroud wants to play in England, if Arsene [Wenger] agrees with the president [Louis Nicollin], he will sign for them”, Girard told French radio station RMC.
